The full moon rises over Baltimore at 8:30 this evening. Some sources say the July full moon is the Hay Moon or Thunder Moon. But as the second full moon since the summer solstice, it should be considered the Grain Moon or Green Corn Moon. The confusion arises because we had two full moons in May. That gives us 13 for the calendar year, confounding those who would assign one traditional full-moon name per month. It happens fairly often, in seven years out of every 19.

Tatyana McFadden surged to the lead of the New York City Marathon, and mile after mile, waited for a rival to challenge her. As has been the case all year, however, no one could catch the Clarksville resident. McFadden won the women's wheelchair race in dominant fashion Sunday, completing her unprecedented quest to win four major marathons in a calendar year. “I've had an incredible year, especially with the track season and with the marathon season,” McFadden said after winning the race by nearly four minutes over Japan's Wakako Tsuchida.

GULLANE, Scotland - When Tiger Woods approached the practice ground at Muirfield on Monday morning, a female marshal stood in his way. Woods had left his credentials in his car, and she didn't recognize the world's No. 1 player. At first, Woods and members of his entourage thought the woman was joking. She wasn't. "I guess I convinced her by saying that I won the tournament two years ago," Woods recalled yesterday with a laugh. The marshal, who later was reassigned to another location on the course, was probably the only person here for the 131st British Open who couldn't identify Woods.

Jamie Murdock of Parkville writes: Why isn't a Maryland fishing license valid for one year from the date of purchase? For example, say you turn 16 (when the state requires a license) on Oct. 25 and want to do some late-fall fishing, so you spend $25 to get a license. That license expires at midnight Dec. 31 instead of Oct. 25 of the following year. Essentially this person's license was good for only 66 days before he or she had to shell out another $25. Outdoors Girl replies: The Dec. 31 expiration date for all annual licenses was set more than 25 years ago by state statute.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Tiger Woods has always been a traditionalist in a game where the rules are as important as the results. It means being respectful of your elders and their accomplishments while obliterating their records and overshadowing their legends. In the eight months since he won his third straight major with a scintillating playoff victory over journeyman Bob May in the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Ky., Woods has given second thought to his position about what constitutes winning golf's Grand Slam.

Bob Walsh, in Baltimore, wonders about the summer solstice. Usually it is June 21, but it was June 20 this year, for the first time since 1896. It can occur on June 22, but not again until 2203. "What causes the date/time to change?" Bob asks. Our 365/366-day calendar year doesn't perfectly match the "tropical year" - the time it takes Earth to return to the same spot in its journey around the sun. Mostly, that orbit varies because of gravitational tugs from Jupiter and other planets.

The storms of September dropped almost 7 1/2 inches of rain on Baltimore, capping a 12-month cycle of soggy weather that rivals the wettest calendar years in the city's history. Baltimore-Washington International Airport has received 62 inches of precipitation since October last year. That's about normal for Mobile, Ala., but nearly 50 percent higher than the 42-inch norm for BWI in a calendar year. If that much had been measured from January to December, the weather service would rank it officially as the second-wettest year in 132 years of recordkeeping for Baltimore.
