Moon Causing Wicked Low Tide

You may have noticed the brightness of the moon the past several nights. This is a result of it being the closest it gets to the earth in a cycle. This has the effect of causing extreme high tide and low tide this week. ┬áIn Boston Harbor, the flats off Thomson Island, Castle Island and even the rarely visible Lower Middle flats were visible. The picture above is from the entrance to Hewitt’s Cove in Hingham, which were fully visible at low tide – this is unusual and is a good reminder for boaters not to cut the #3 can!
