I am working on the template of this blog today in order to chase down some problems that have developed with my template and widgets.

Watch the Moon Occult Antares Saturday Night

Photo Credit: Sky and Telescope

The Moon will be only about 16 hours from full when, on Saturday evening June 6th in the Americas, it will cross the 1st-magnitude red supergiant star Antares.
The occultation will be visible across much of the United States and Canada, all of Central America and the Caribbean, and northern South America. Surrounding areas get a still-spectacular near miss.

If the weather is clear at my location, I'll try to take some photos of the event.
