Twenty-five miles south of Alturas, California, in Northeastern Lassen County, the Tule Mountain Wilderness Study Area was the scene of wildfire in September 2012.  Some of Bob Wick’s amazing time lapse photography of the area in the aftermath can be found at http://bit.ly/Sb4T6G

Super Moon
— June 23, 2013

Be sure to look out for the Moon these next few months as it approaches Perigee, because the full moons during these times will appear exceptionally large. The Moon will be at its Perigee, or closest approach, in June 23 and it will reach full moon only a few minutes after it passes this point in its orbit.

These ‘super moons’ not only appear larger because they are physically closer but, combined with a full moon, the mind can play tricks on you to think they are much larger. This phenomena is called the Moon Illusion. Try to catch these full moons as they rise/set because the illusion works when there is an object in the foreground, like a tree, building or mountains.
