I don’t know who started this meme. A few friends on my facebook feed have insisted that today, a Friday the 13th, we have a full moon. It just happened in 2014 and doesn’t occur again till 2049. Transits of Mercury are more frequent.
I had to check the sky the other night–it’s been remarkably clear for some days now in the Pacific Northwest. Tuesday I noticed a crescent moon in the west. No way is that satellite going to be full by Friday, I thought.
Like this tune says, “This is the Space Age. Just don’t worry.”
