Astronomically speaking...

Tomorrow; 1/4 moon.
Saturday night; Occultation of Mars by the Moon (the Moon will be blocking Mars from our view here on Earth.) From the sound of it, the occultation will occur around midnight (depending on where you are,) so in some cases, this may technically occur on Sunday.
Tuesday, Jan. 22nd; Full moon.

Occultation sounds wicked, like some kind of indoctrination into a cult.

Sorry I know that has nothing to so with your post but that is what occurred to me as I read.

With apologies...Just a note to say that the duck on my birds blog just returned this afternoon.

Good to know about the full moon! My students and I will both be a little crazy that day so I'm marking it on the calendar. You can definitely tell when it's happening.

Travis; I know...It sounds so wicked, but (in a sense,) it's just a fancy word for "eclipse."

Lincoln; Awesome! I'll pop back over for another look.

Michelle; It's a good excuse for so many things. *L*
