And a few auspicious dates are coming up:
Friday the 13th
Pi Day and Einstein’s Birthday on the 14th
the Ides of March on the 15th
St Patrick’s day on the 17th
The 20th of March: The Vernal Equinox, a solar eclipse, and a super moon
The totality of the solar eclipse will be mostly over the north atlantic and north pole, the largest populated land mass is the Faroe Islands https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faroe_Islands , but the Icelandic slooh observatory will televise the eclipse: http://main.slooh.com/ on the 20th at 4:30 am EDT
And the big show: the Vernal Equinox on the 20th of March at 6:45 PM EDT (22:45 UTC)
And Spring Begins. Now mark your calendars, the next confluence of the vernal equinox and total solar eclipse will not happen again until 2072.
The supermoon: kind of a non-event but this new moon does mark it the moon’s closest approach to earth in the moon’s somewhat eliptical orbit, about 15% bigger.
