The super full moon arrived just before the spring equinox which is the reason Easter is so late this year. Our skies were mainly cloudy on Saturday and I was disappointed that I could not see the full moon rise at dusk. Anvilcloud wrote from the Ottawa area,
"Just saw it very low over the horizon on our way home. Very big and orange. Hope you get to see it too."
My husband stepped out around 10 PM and noticed the skies had cleared and the moon was finally visible. By this time it was high in the sky but it was large and bright. There really is no way to show that this moon is closer to earth than it has been in 18 years.
I am happy that the spring is here with each day bringing more light and new life. A couple of weeks ago I brought some pussywillow and forsythia twigs indoors and forced them to open in the warmth of the house. They sit in an arrangement beside me as a prelude to the season ahead.
"Come, gentle Spring! Ethereal Mildness! Come."
Here are some amazing pictures of the Super Full Moon from around the world.
