It doesn’t look good for eclipse -viewing. It has been a day of rain, wind, and even graupel! As I write this, snow is falling, clinging like blossoms on the spring trees.
Here is the post I wrote about the full moon tonight. Weather permitting, it was supposed to be visible here.
“Weather permitting” is the operative phrase–and for skywatching, it’s particularly challenging–the city lights, and all too often cloudy conditions.
Fortunately, there are other ways to watch the sky. NASA is offering a live webcast starting at 10pm Eastern time. You can see Mars at its closes approach to Earth in years, too.
Here is the link to the webcast, courtesy of Space.com.
There is a Zen saying, “reflected in water, the moon does not get wet.” Go out and marvel at the snow that will melt away tomorrow. Forget the wind and rain. Tonight we can see the moon, whatever the weather.
