Lunar Apogee (Greek apo, away from + Greek Gaia, Earth)

Exact at
November 15
1148 GMT
6:48am EST
3:48am PST.

The Moon is at its farthest distance in its non circular orbit around Earth. The Moon is about 12% farther than at its closest distance (perigee - Greek peri, near + Greek Gaia, Earth) and the Moon's gravitational influence on Earth and its oceans is about 20% less (due to the inverse square law).


Leonid Meteor Shower Peak(s)

November 17
1500 & 2115 GMT
and
November 17 or 18, Moonset until Dawn (about 2AM-5AM local time)

The Leonids are visible from the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Tropics. This year the peak times favor the Pacific from Alaska and Hawaii west to the International Date Line (IDL) in the early morning of November 17. West of the IDL through most of Asia is favored in the early morning of November 18.

The maximum rate is forecast to be about 20 per hour this year but has been variable recently.

Leonids, IMO Meteor Shower Calendar 2010 | International Meteor Organization.

For Better Viewing
Find a Dark Location
A dark country location without "security" lights is best. If that's not convenient try to find a location where you can't see any lights or lighted surfaces. A nearby park or maybe even your backyard would qualify. On a beach facing the water would be another good alternative.

Where to Look
Meteors can appear in any part of the sky. To see the most meteors face the darkest part of your sky and look at least 45° above the horizon.

Be Comfortable
A reclining chair will keep you from getting a stiff neck and tired feet. A sleeping bag will keep you warm. (Even in the summertime you can get chilly at night if you are just lying still.) Insect repellent will keep you from being distracted by those little pests.

General Meteor Shower Information
An easy to read introduction to meteors with an interesting summary of annual showers is
Astronomy - Meteors and meteor showers - Francis Reddy.

Two primary sources of information on meteor showers are
The American Meteor Society and
The International Meteor Organinzation.

9:27am PST.

Rises near sunset and sets near sunrise. At those times the Moon may seem huge (the Moon illusion) and unusually colored. The yellow/orange/red appearance of the Moon at the horizon is at least partly for the same reason the sky appears blue!

The gravitational pull of the Moon accounts for about 2/3 of the influence on Earth's tides with the Sun accounting for the remaining 1/3. On this date the gravitational pull of the Moon and Sun are aligned resulting in stronger tides - higher highs, lower lows and faster flows. (Due to the huge mass and volume of the ocean's water the tidal effect lags behind the phases of the Moon. The delay can be as long as three days at some times and places.)

The gravitational pull of the Moon accounts for about 2/3 of the influence on Earth's tides with the Sun accounting for the remaining 1/3. On this date the gravitational pull of the Moon and Sun are at right angles resulting in weaker tides - lower highs, higher lows and slower flows. (Due to the huge mass and volume of the ocean's water the tidal effect lags behind the phases of the Moon. The delay can be as long as three days at some times and places.)

The Moon is at its closest distance in its non circular orbit around Earth.

NASA's Robotic Lander Takes Flight


On Monday, June 13, the robotic lander mission team was poised and ready when the lander prototype in the adjacent building lifted itself off the ground and rose unrestrained higher and higher. Applause broke out in the control room when the lander gently sat back down. This marks the first free flight of this prototype for the Robotic Lunar Lander Development Project managed at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. The robotic lander flew up to 7 feet for 27 seconds.

The total lunar eclipse today should be one of the darkest in a while (see the animation at Shadow & Substance).

North America can't actually witness it but almost every other area of the world will can. The Indian Ocean and adjacent countries will be the best areas for viewing (see the NASA Lunar Eclipse Charts for 2011-06-15).

North America will be able to watch live webcasts during the day. :^) Total eclipse will last from 1922-2102 GMT. Readily apparent partial eclipse begins at 1822 GMT and ends 2202 at GMT.

There is a good article with graphics and links to live webcasts at
June 15th's Deep, Eastern Lunar Eclipse - Observing Blog - SkyandTelescope.com.

The entire sequence will probably be visible in clear skies at

A deep marine layer will remain in place at tomorrow morning's launch time. An elevation of at least 3,000 feet will likely be necessary to see the Delta II as it climbs.

The scheduled Delta II launch from Vandenberg has been postponed one day to June 10 at 7:20-7:25am PDT (10:20-10:25 EDT).

The Aquarius mission to study global ocean salinity is scheduled to launch tomorrow June 9 from Vandenberg AFB, California atop a Delta II rocket during a 7:20-7:25am PDT (10:20-10:25 EDT) window. The marine layer is expected to obscure the launch from locations lower than about 4,000 ft.

Hades Thanks for the heads up on the eclipses.

The total lunar eclipse on June 15 should be one of the darkest in a while (see the animation at Shadow & Substance).

North America won't see any of it but almost every other area of the world will see some of it. The Indian Ocean and adjacent countries will be the best areas for viewing (see the NASA Lunar Eclipse Charts for 2011-06-15).

Pat Thanks for covering the shuttle shuffle and welcoming Endeavour home. I'm sorry to say I fell asleep during the Atlantis crawl and missed the exciting parts. :^[

Entry interface, the point at which the shuttle begins entering the Earth’s atmosphere, will occur at 2:03 a.m. EDT. Peak heating begins at 2:12 a.m., the first roll reversal to slow the spacecraft will take place at 2:16 a.m., and peak heating should end about 2:22 a.m.

Endeavour will head to the northeast across the west coast of Florida near Fort Meyers Beach, triggering dual sonic booms minutes later when it slows to subsonic speeds at about 2:31 a.m. Commander Mark Kelly will align Endeavour with Kennedy’s northwest to southeast runway 15 and touch down at 2:35:23 a.m. EDT
