Spring begins Sunday, March 20 at 6:21 pm CDT as the days grow longer until Summer begins in June.
Don't forget to look toward the East tonight after 7:50 PM to see the Super Moon rising. Will update this later in case it becomes cloudy.

There are scattered clouds covering half the sky right now. Visual inspection outside showed some cloud movement to the NE. Wundermap shows some small clouds with clearing to the SW. GOES 13 ZOOMED in 150% shows small paintbrush tip dots of white in this area near the Red River. So... be patient if you want to see the Moon. Any treeline or Eastern horizon obstruction will block the moon's ascent anyway for about 30 minutes to an hour, sometimes more. Will try to get a photo and post it in an hour or so if the sky permits.
