MAY VS. COD


May seems a most suitable month to mention our southern sister, Cape May. We’re still on Team Cod, obviously, but New Jersey does boast certain advantages. Higher average temperatures during the month of May, for example. Easy access to NYC, too. And that turnpike! And those pine barrens! And… Bon Jovi? We might be a wee bit biased, but we think Cape Cod is winning.

 

MAY’S METEOR-LOGICAL FORECAST:


KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE SKIES!

Cartographers of yore didn’t just plot out our modest little planet, they mapped the heavens, too! This celestial map features contellations visible to the Northern hemisphere during April, May, and June. This year, Stargazers on the 5th of May might just catch the Eta Aquarids metor shower. And if that’s not reason enough to look up, on the night of May 23rd, the Comet 209P/LINEAR is likely to produce quite the light show. Furthermore, the full Moon is on May 14th this year. Do you know what the first full moon of May is called? The Flower Moon, naturally.
