Thursday's Thought

The last supermoon of the year will pass across the Shotley peninsula tonight, looking almost close enough to touch. Known also as a strawberry moon, the supermoon is a full moon which appears about 14% bigger and 30% brighter than normal. The best time to gets its full effect is to look in a south eastern direction just after sunset at around 21.30. A strawberry moon gets its name, not for its colour, but was even by native North American Indians, as it usually arrived when they collected strawberries.

"The moon is waning. Do you think it's sad?"

Nah, it's just going through a phase.

Did you groan? (send us your own favourite joke)
