Beginning of the Perigee

(Photo from Pinterest - taken by "Dwight")
Mornin'!  It's 43° in Wildwood.  It's cloudy with no breezes to note.  The horizon is beginning to brighten with some of those beautiful Fall colors on those gray clouds. Ms Sun's actually rising as I type.  Not sure how much we'll see of her.  It'll be a mostly cloudy day with plenty of cloud cover as well as periods of sunshine peeking through and temps tapping the 50s with breezes out of the N-NW at 3-5mph.  Tonight...mostly clear with temps in the low-mid 40s and light, variable breezes out of the North.  Tonight is the beginning of the Special Supermoon Trilogy.  Tonight, January 1st and January 31st all will have a Full Super Moon.  The moon is at its fullest and closest point of its orbit around the earth (perigee).  It'll be especially full and orange and spectacular looking on the moonrise...14% bigger and 30% brighter to be exact.
High Tide: 7:04a.m.
