The Moon and More

     Words can’t describe how beautiful the Gunflint Trail is right now.  The snow is hanging onto the branches of the trees and the sunlight makes everything sparkle.  The winter landscape is incredible in spite of the cold temperatures.

     Mike is taking advantage of the winter wonderland and is out camping in the wilderness.  He has front row seats for tonights big show. 

FULL MOON AND MARS: Friday night’s full Moon is the biggest and brightest full Moon of the year. It’s a "perigee Moon," as much as 14% wider and 30% brighter than other full Moons you’ll see later in 2010. But that’s not all. Mars is having a close encounter with Earth, and on Friday night, Jan. 29th, it will join the Moon for an all-night-long conjunction. Don’t miss it! Sky maps and images may be found at
