Staycation and a quick road-trip before Labor Day. Been working hard , time to relax and hope I don't get bothered too much.
Supermoon: the term ‘supermoon’ is not astronomical. Scientists call this event a ‘perigee moon’: it takes place when the full Moon reaches the closest point to Earth on its oval orbit. This point is called perigee and it is about 50,000 km closer to our planet than the opposite side of the Moon’s elliptical path – apogee. Native Americans used to give every full moon a special name. For example, the full moon in August was often referred to as the Sturgeon Moon.
Had Potato Gnocchi with Mushroom sauce last night, delicious.
