Tips to see the stars this winter

Date: 12/27/2018 | Source: http://cottagelife.com

One of the wonderful things about getting away from the big city is getting to see the stars without so much light pollution. Despite the cold, winter is a great time for stargazing! The cooler temperatures mean a greater chance of clear skies! There will be a full moon on January 6, February 4 and March 6. There will also be a super blood moon on January 20! Cottage Life said, "Also known as a total lunar eclipse, this happens when the full moon passes through the Earth’s shadow. As sunlight hits the surface of the moon, it gives it a red hue—lending to the event’s ‘bloody’ name." So, mark your calendars to head outside at 10:30 that night! Happy stargazing!
