Get a jump on the Super Moon Today at 4:11 PM

Do not listen to the naysayers. The Super Moon really is Super. 30% brighter. If you are standing on the southern end of Long Beach at 4:11 PM the Super Duper Moon will rise among the twin towers of Thacher Island. Go to The Photographers Ephemeris (click to app) and you can move around and precisely find where you need to stand to split the uprights of the Towers with the moon.


Pro Tip: Leave your camera home. Someone else will take a great photo. Instead of fussing with a camera just stand there with your dog and enjoy the earth rotating under your feet so the moon magically appears on the horizon. I would also recommend smoking a doobie but it is not legal. Yet.

On Monday the moon will rise in about the same place but at 4:55 PM. The sun will already have set at 4:20 PM so it might be even more super than Sunday.

70 – 74 Thatcher Road: Brier Neck Shores construction across from Good Harbor Beach parking lot

Intersection of Thatcher and Witham Streets, behind Good Harbor Beach, next door to the construction site of the former Olivia’s/Amelia’s property.







The property is legally described as Assessors Map 184, Lots #5 and #9, also known as 70-74 Thatcher Road. Property information from a quick on line search:

Failed 2012 CPA bid has background on the property and a description of habitat and wildlife birds etc

(2014) Excerpt from Friends of Good Harbor:“… Brierneck Realty LLC has begun construction on twelve condominiums on property at 70-74 Thatcher Road at the corner of Witham Street.  The new owners are Paul St. Hilaire and Robert Messina, who purchased the fully permitted property from James Griffoni and partners. The construction of condominiums at the edge of Good Harbor salt marsh was fought in court by the City of Gloucester on behalf of the Zoning Appeals Board.  The property owners had received a comprehensive permit from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Housing Appeals Committee based upon the inclusion of 25% affordable units under Chapter 40B and won final approval from the Supreme Judicial Court in 2011.  The Gloucester Building Department granted a final permit in the spring of 2014.  The Friends of Good Harbor held a purchase and sale agreement with the owners in 2013 with the intention of restoring the property to salt marsh, however the agreement expired and the original owners were unwilling to sign a renewal.  The new owners expect to build the condominiums in stages, with the first cluster now under construction and targeted for completion in 2015. Representatives of FOGH have met with the new owners about their plans for construction as well as design and landscaping details.  In addition, conversation is taking place with respect to coordinating the early-stage planning of a Thatcher Road walkway, for which the new owners have offered their cooperation. Planning for the construction of six condominiums across Witham Street is also underway with other owners on the Thatcher Road site of Olivia’s Restaurant (formerly Amelia’s).  The property has been rezoned for residential construction…”

2016 prospectus “Introducing Brier Neck Shores at Good Harbor Beach, Gloucester’s Newest water view condos. Located directly across the street from Good Harbor Beach you’ll experience calming salty air as you enjoy expansive Gloucester scenery from every window…townhomes are delightfully modern with stainless steel appliances, recessed lighting and hardwood flooring throughout. Open concept design is perfect for entertaining guests or peacefully enjoy your own company.  Enjoy all that this exclusive area offers while being close proximity to scenic Rockport, the Rockport Country Club, spectacular local cuisine and easy access to 128.” They’d be close to Gloucester’s 18 hole Bass Rocks Golf Club, established 1899


No big moonset this morning…

Got up at 3:00 this morning hoping to get the big moon setting… only to be met with a sky full of clouds.   Since we were up, hubs and I headed over to GHB for sunrise and a breakfast at Sugar Mags.  It’s looking good for some clear skies later on so get out and check out the moon which is scheduled to rise around 4:15.  Happy Sunday!blm_8102-edit-edit-edit
