Plan to get outside on Saturday night and witness the rise of the “supermoon” – a full moon when it is closest to the earth has not happened in almost two decades.  The moon will appear to be much larger than normal, with the best viewing as it rises in the eastern sky, and the sun sets in the west. Partly cloudy skies are forecast for the Four Corners, so visibility should be O.K. for the big event. More info from NASA here.

10 ways in which babies and sheep are similar

1. They’re cute!

2. Lambs and babies are about the same average weight at birth.

3. They can’t tell you what’s wrong when they’re sick.  You have to pay attention to if they’ve eaten and how they look and act.

4. They nurse!

5. Lambs and children are very attached to their mamas.

6. Twins are a handful, triplets more so.  Quads are rare, and there are even quints.

7. They cry when they’re stressed.

8. Both sheep and babies should be kept in pens

9. There’s always a black sheep if you give birth to too many
