Do you love gazing at the moon? The moon will full at 5:08 pm, eastern standard time. In September, we had the Harvest Moon. Tonight the moon is called the Hunter’s Moon. The moon will also be full tomorrow night. If we are lucky and it doesn’t rain, the moon may appear to have an orange hue as it appears on the horizon.
You can see a calendar of the moon phases here from the University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory as well as daily information about moon.
At sunset, Jewish people also celebrate Sukkot, a religious harvest celebration.
Check out their 1-1/2 minute video that talks about the Hunter’s Moon and its traditions.
The New Moon will be October 27 at 11:28 pm.
Fall is here and I am glad. I love fall.
Here is a sort little animated film — no words — about autumn. It’s hard for me to describe, but if you watch it, I think you’ll like it.
Enjoy a fun day outside surrounded by costumed interpreters (1771 historical period), entertainers, demonstrations, children’s activities, and lots of delicious foods.
