The first was on January 2, and the next one will be on Wednesday, January 31. The first full moon brought the natural satellite closer to the Earth, making it appear a little larger and much brighter. The second full moon will bring a total lunar eclipse for viewers in North America. Unfortunately for everyone here in Downcast Maine, the moon will be just entering the umbra stage of the eclipse at sunrise, which means the darker phase of the eclipse will be just starting as the sun comes up while the moon is setting, mak- ing it harder to actually see it. Look to the west at sunrise on the morning of January 31 for a slightly reddish setting moon. The sidereal period of the moon is about 27 1/3 days or the approximate time it takes the moon to orbit the Earth relative to the background stars. The synodic period of the moon adds a couple more days to that time frame because the Earth is also mov- ing in its orbit, and that is the period the moon completes its cycle of phases. The month of January is a long month, 31 days, longer than the lunar month, allowing a rare second full moon to occur. EASTERN MAINE IMAGES 807-ga$-O787 Fuel spill closes local shellfish area On January 12 the Department of Ma- fine Resources issued a notice closing Bar Harbor and Half Moon Cove in Eastport to shellfish harvesting due to a fuel spill. The area was reopened on January 19 af- ter shellfish samples passed fuel contami- nation testing standards. Course on starting sea-farm business scheduled at UMM The Aquaculture in Shared Waters project provides courses, field trips, work- shops, reference materials and start-up support for fishermen who want to learn more about starting a sea-farming busi- ness.
