Full Moon Fiasco 81

Ahh summer is finally here...

When: Thur, July 26th @ 8pm
Where: Eich's
Theme: Get Lei’d (Hawaiian Shirts)

And so, we will all again be embarking on the biggest bicycling event to every happen in Sandpoint. Summer FBC.

Here are some interesting tidbits from the Farmer's Almanac. First, this year, a total lunar eclipse will occur with the full Moon on July 27. However, this eclipse won’t be visible from the U.S. or Canada. For sky watch buffs, it may be interesting to know that this is the longest total lunar eclipse of the 21st century. From start to finish, the event will last four hours, with the totality lasting 1 hour and 43 minutes. Second, even bigger news is the long-awaited Mars opposition—also on Friday, July 27! The Red Planet is extremely close, bright, and red in the night sky, appearing right near the Full Moon!

But enough science, summer is in full swing here in Sandpoint. So, get out your beach wear, and don't forget your hawaiian shirt and leis, and let's ride!
