Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick” Was Published In The U.S., This Day, 166-Years Ago; November 14, 1851.
I have to confess that I am NOT sure whether I have ever read ‘Moby Dick’ in its entirety! Yikes. I know I have tried, but I have this distinct impression that I gave up — albeit, this from when I was a teenager (and, to be honest, I do not that often NOT finish a book if I start reading it).
That said I have read Nathaniel Philbrick’s “Revenge of the Whale” — and recently also watched the movie. I am a BIG fan of Nathaniel Philbrick and have read 3 or 4 of his other books.
Interesting that ‘Moby Dick’ was first published in London — rather than New York.

It will NOT be bad over New Hampshire tonight.
Try around 5:15pm looking East. Should be hard to miss.
Slight chance we might have some clouds tomorrow, Monday, November 14 — the main day so to speak.
Super, Supermoon On Monday, November 14, 2016 — Largest Since 1948 & Not Another Similar For 18 Years.
For many this could be a once in a lifetime Supermoon, given that the last one of this magnitude was in 1948 and the next in 2034.
It all has to do with the fact that the Moon’s closest approach to Earth is NOT constant each month. It is closer to Earth some months than others. Multiple factors influence this, including the Sun’s gravitational pull.
Plus, a Supermoon is NOT an astronomical term. It is more a lay term and as such there is latitude in what is considered ‘closest’ to Earth. In any given month, for it to be a Supermoon the moon doesn’t even have to be at its closest point to the Earth for that month. It only has to be within 90% of the closest approach.
Hence why all Supermoon’s are not equal.
So the November 14, 2016 will be 229 miles (0.10%) closer to Earth than the September 2015 Supermoon.
I just hope we have good weather that night.
