Prisoner of Azkaban, Chapter 15

Be sure to look out for the Moon these next few months as it approaches Perigee, because the full moons during these times will appear exceptionally large. The Moon will be at its Perigee, or closest approach, in July 23 and it will reach full moon only a few minutes after it passes this point in its orbit.
These ‘super moons’ not only appear larger because they are physically closer but, combined with a full moon, the mind can play tricks on you to think they are much larger. This phenomena is called the Moon Illusion. Try to catch these full moons as they rise/set because the illusion works when there is an object in the foreground, like a tree, building or mountains.
The day after my birthday! Yaaayyyy! (P.s. The Moon rules Cancer)

Southern Marsupial Mole (Notoryctes typhlops)
is a species of mole-like marsupial found in the deserts of southern Australia. although they are not moles they bear some resemblance to them as they are highly adapted to a life underground, so well adapted that they lack complete eyes, large shovel forepaws that act as shovels and excellent hearing. Marsupial moles spend most of their lives underground, but not in burrows like moles do, marsupial moles “swim through the sand” as whatever tunnels it makes fill in as the animal moves on. not much is known about their diet but from what is known it seems they are insectivores feeding on insect eggs and earthworms. Although they spend most of their lives underground searching for food they have been known to come to the surface but very rarely, mostly after rain or during cool days.
