Avalon and Stone Harbor NJ Weekly Update February 9th, 2017

INSURANCE SOLUTIONS: that’s the topic of discussion at a public class offered Thursday, February 16th from 10am until 12noon at Avalon Community Hall.  Discussion will include current regulations, elevation certificates, and identifying and correcting costly mistakes.  All are welcome to attend the session. Bring your elevation certificate, and your questions!

The shore is beautiful all year long!  Here’s a peaceful winter sunset from the Avalon Boulevard bridge.

FRIDAY: FULL MOON + LUNAR ECLIPSE!  February’s full moon occurs on Friday, with the moon rising at 5:18pm.  Later on, look for a “penumbral lunar eclipse” as the moon slides into the earth’s shadow.  Scientists say the effect will be subtle, but look for the peak of the eclipse at 7:44pm.  For those awake in the wee hours of the morning, the “New Year” comet will reach its closest point to Earth in the very early hours of Saturday morning.  At 7.5 million miles from Earth, the comet will be visible with the naked eye, but scientists say a pair of binoculars will help!  The beach often proves to be a good location for observing the skies, since it’s a bit darker than most other areas.
