Early morning could be a good time to see something.

Maybe taking out the dog or going to work early am.
West coast has a good view.

The moon sets early making it very dark for viewing.
Please read the details (link) and see if you have a good vantage point.
Me, iffy at best .

The longest day of the year is June 21
Half of the grow season is over for most of us in the northern hemisphere.
We will start to lose about a minute of daylight for our plants.
If you are going to repot,split,transplant any of your plants your grow season is winding down.

Summer Solstice

There is a cautionary tale about "keep looking up" in the children's book Struwwelpeter written by Heinrich Hoffmann, in 1845 Germany. Mark Twain translated it into English, but, the poetry sounds much better in German.

LOL...so true.

Now it is "keep looking down" at your cell phone.

Now if we can only "keep looking ahead"

Most of us are on the wrong side of the planet for this one but the full moon will still look awesome.
Some great photos will be had.

Blood moon and historic lunar eclipse.

Actually, you should look down at the sidewalk for cracks, dog poo, and money. If you have normal peripheral vision, you will still see other people approaching.

About 5 years ago, Walgreens offered AARP members $0.01 per mile (in "award points" each worth $0.001) to walk for exercise. AARP had an image advertising this offer in which people were walking while looking ahead smiling. On the AARP forum, I wrote that you can find more money than that lying on the sidewalk but those people in the picture will miss it and step in dog poo. I walk 30 miles/week and I once found $17 and once found $20. I often find pennies but I don't bother to pick them up. Shame on me!

its been said; the people who wont pick up a penny don't need it. and the ones who wont pick up a penny tails up are the rich ones.

as for me if I pick up a penny no matter how it lays, I get to spend someone else's money.

For those that are interested, you can view the Blood RED Moon eclipse (1:30 pm ET) as it is happening (Real time) from these two links. The view is from Rome, It.

Shorter days and cooler nights ahead for the northern hemisphere.

Banana growth will slow to a halt in some areas and pick up in others.
