Elizabeth Woodworth: We're leading up to 50th anniversary of first man on the moon
Throughout the South, sap should start to run in maples as the moon waxes. (It's spring somewhere!) Scatter grass seed over bare spots on the lawn. The sun enters the late winter sign of Aquarius on the 20th. It's likely a warm-up and precipitation will occur before Full Moon on the 21st. The supermoon will delay any other thaw until the last week of the month. The supermoon brings deep cold and stress to livestock and homesteaders, but it also stimulates a quickening of bird and small animal activity. (Countryside) A total lunar eclipse will be seen in our area on Jan. 20-21. It will start at 8:36 p.m. and last until 1:45 a.m., with maximum eclipse at 11:12 p.m. The supermoon on the 21st coincides with perigee, when the moon is closest to the earth during its monthly orbit. Measured center to center, a supermoon only comes when the distance is less than 224,975 miles. On the 21st, the distance will be 222,274 miles.
