Full Snow Moon, Eclipse, & A Comet Tonight


The skies will offer a pleasant winter show tonight, Friday, Feb. 10.
On tap: a full moon (February's full moon is called the "snow moon"), a green comet and a lunar eclipse.
That's a lot to take in. Here are the details and the best times to watch:
  • The lunar surface of the snow moon will be subtly shadowed by a penumbral lunar eclipse — when Earth, the sun and moon align, EarthSky says.
  • It is the last penumbral lunar eclipse until 2020, according to AccuWeather.
  •  
  • The eclipse will be best viewed from the eastern portions of North America, after sunset tonight. For East Coasters, it is expected to begin at 5:32 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and will peak at 7:43 p.m., according to Space.com. The beginning of the eclipse may not be visible for people in the Midwest and along Pacific because the moon will rise close to the horizon around the same time as the sunset, the website says.
  • Can't see from your neighborhood? You can also watch the eclipse online via US Naval Observatory.
  • You'll need to stay up extra late to catch the third celestial event — Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdušáková streaking by the Earth. The comet will be visible just before dawn on Saturday, according to Weather.com. Bring your binoculars.
  • The comet, also known as the New Year comet, will be the closest it has been to Earth since 2011, according to Weather.com. "Close" is a relative word: it will pass about 8 million miles from Earth this weekend.
Of course, your luck in seeing this sky show depends on the weather

Bill To Legalize Marijuana In NJ


TRENTON -- With an avowed enemy of marijuana legalization sworn-in as the nation's Attorney General Thursday, the state lawmaker working to make pot available for recreational use in New Jersey said he is "concerned" but not deterred from his goal.
Sen. Nicholas Scutari (D-Union) said he's putting the finishing touches on a bill he will introduce that would make the sale and possession of marijuana legal for recreational use in New Jersey. Former U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions' appointment as the highest law enforcement officer in the nation doesn't change his plans.
"It doesn't give me pause. It's a concern but we are not going to pause," Scutari told NJ Advance Media Thursday. "Hopefully he will follow what President Trump said as a candidate -- that it's a states' rights issue."


A growing of state lawmakers are warming to the idea based on the record of revenue Colorado has enjoyed since its law took effect in 2014. In taxes and fees, Colorado took in $135 million in 2015. The potential financial benefits of legalization were highlighted in a report estimating New Jersey could reap $300 million a year in sales tax revenue.
The legal marijuana market was valued at $6.7 billion in the United States and Canada, according to Arcview Market Research, which specializes in the cannabis industry.


Gov. Chris Christie is also opposed to legal marijuana for recreational use. Christie has reluctantly implemented a law signed by Gov. Jon Corzine to create a medical marijuana program, which served nearly 11,000 people as of January.
With Christie gone as of January 2018, Scutari said he hopes his bill will become law under the next administration.
