5 Things to remember & note.

  1. It will NOT be a BLUE Moon! That is just an expression — in that it is the 2nd Full Moon in the month. The other having been on January 1, 2018 — which was also a Supermoon.
    So, I repeat. The moon will NOT be blue. Not Blue. Promise.
  2. The TOTAL eclipse begins to the West of us. So we will only see a Partial Eclipse and a very partial one at that. And it will be fleeting.
  3. The Moon will set beyond the horizon, not counting our tree line, soon after the Partial Eclipse starts!
    We might see it, at most, for 3 minutes! Yes, 3 minutes. It might already be below the tree line.
  4. It is in the morning. Not at night. 6:57 am — i.e., morning.
  5. Weather could, as ever, in New Hampshire, be an issue.
