Wherever you are in the world tonight, you can be part of the International Observe the Moon Night. In Tucson a lot is happening on the UA mall - free telescopes operated by scientists who can guide you, indoor activities at Flandrau Science Center, and all will be topped off with a fantastic laser light show to the music of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" (of course!!). I think the moon is quite magical actually and it's always nice to know that when someone you care about is far away, you can be drawn closer by knowing that you are having the same experience looking at the moon. Enjoy the skies tonight!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
