Best moonlight swimming opportunities

  • Updated: August 8, 2014 - 9:23 AM


If you want to swim under a bright moon without being out there in the middle of the night, these might be your best dates before the water is simply too cold. Note that the moon that rises in the evening is often overhead after midnight, which is the next day. The supermoon will rise Sunday at 8:10 p.m. The following times are for Minneapolis:
