8:15 PM EDT 5/5/12  A Special Report from our Maryland Team, provided by high school student and Forecaster Caron S. and Forecast Advisor Rob J. 

Good evening everyone! Are you going to get a great shot of the Super Moon? Despite some partly cloudy conditions, it will still be great night to go out and observe this event where the moon is closer to the Earth than normal, making it appear larger and brighter. 

An added treat for the stargazers among us is waiting in the hours before sunrise. The Eta Aquarids meteor shower should produce 10-30 meteors per hour! Happy star and moon-gazing everyone! More details in this article by the Baltimore Sun.
