Music for the soundtrack to Sledding In Montgomery County


This extemporaneous guitar jam/songwriting session was written and performed under a full moon, and not just any old full moon. This full moon occurred on the winter solstice (December 22nd). Since the full moon on the winter solstice coincided with a lunar perigee (the point in the moon's orbit that is closest to Earth), the moon appeared 14% larger than it does at apogee (the point in it's elliptical orbit that is farthest from Earth). The Earth was also several million miles closer to the sun at this time of the year, making the sunlight striking the moon about 7% more intense.

You are lucky to see a moon like this once in every 133 years -- the biggest and brightest.
