This is May 4th. What does that mean? It means, this is National Star Wars Day. Why, you ask? Because “May the 4th” sounds a lot like “May the Force” be with you!
There is also other otherworldly news this weekend. For the shutterbugs out there, it’s likely to be a great opportunity to snap on your telephoto camera lens and set up the tripod to capture a moon shot or two. This full moon occurring on Saturday night is labeled a “Super Moon.” What does that mean exactly? According to NASA, it means the moon will appear as much 30% brighter and 14% wider than other full moons this year. The best time for viewing the lunar orb will be shortly after moonrise on Saturday evening.
For those of you always looking for a new word to add to your vocabulary, here’s one – “perigee.” Used in a sentence: “Perigee” is the point in the moon’s orbit when it is closest to earth.
