Bright Full Moon

Look up and be amazed at the wonder of our heavens. "The night sky is set to be illuminated by the biggest and brightest full moon for the past 15 years. The next encounter with a moon this close and full will not be until November 2016."

Lucy Cockcroft informs us that, "Each month the Moon orbits the Earth in an oval-shaped path, and on December 12 it will move past it around 28,000km closer than average.

The unusual feature is that this will coincide with a full moon, which will make it appear 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than most full moons this year, on Friday night....Another astronomical treat that could be seen over the weekend is the annual Geminid meteor shower, one of the year's best displays of shooting stars. Up to 100 meteors an hour can fly across the sky. The meteors, which are easy to spot with the naked eye, appear to shoot out from the constellation Gemini, hence their name, but they can be seen all over the sky.

The best chance of seeing them is to look away from the Moon." Source

Tuckie RIP

Some of you may recall Thomas Breunig who was at BB in the mid 1950s, and who settled in small quiet community outside Candler, North Carolina. Tuckie, as we knew him, passed away in January, 2008, and is survived by his brother John, who graduated BB in 1957. You can read the obit here.

One of his friends said of him, "Tuckie Breunig was the star quarterback of Bernards High School's 1960 AND 1961 football teams. I remember Tucker as a great athlete and an excellent, 'field general' who knew how to come up with the right play at the right time."

About New Jersey

Some energetic people have put together lists of unique facts about New Jersey. One of them can be found here. This comment surprised me, "In November of 1914, the New York Tribune, cooperating with Mr. Bertram Chapman Mayo (founder of Beachwood) issued an "Extra" announcing: "Subscribe to the New York Tribune and secure a lot at Beautiful Beachwood. Act at once, secure your lot in this Summer Paradise now!" This was the greatest premium offered by a newspaper - nothing equal to it was ever attempted in the United States."
Here is another similar list titled, Stupid Facts about New Jersey.
Best, George
