There are truly few things that I love more than looking at the night sky. Ever since my childhood at summer camp, I've loved laying outside and gazing up at a crystal clear night sky. And this week we'll have not one, but a trio of treats in the skies over Ocean County.
After two days of mostly cloudy skies, you may have noticed something incredibly bright in the clearing skies over Ocean County tonight. And it'll get even more impressive in a little while as a rare cosmic event takes place tonight.
You'll probably be up late tonight anyway finishing those last minute taxes, so take a few minutes to step outside for a somewhat rare celestial event. Tonight (well, actually early tomorrow morning), there will be a "blood moon" lunar eclipse.
