The Week Ahead: Friday, September 25 through Thursday, October 1, 2015
September 25, 2015
Welcome to the last week of September everyone! Among the events taking place this week are Felix Neck’s Moonrise Kayak Tours. Those participating this week are in for a special treat: On September 27 September’s full moon, also called a harvest moon, will be the last of 4 consecutive super moons. A super moon occurs when a full or new moon passes the earth at the closest point of its orbit. Sunday’s moon will be passing closer to the earth than the others and will therefore appear to be larger than any of the preceding three. Even more amazing, the moon will pass into a total lunar eclipse beginning at 10:11 pm and ending at 11:24 pm, giving the moon a coppery red aspect. Eyes to the sky to experience nature’s light show and enjoy the Week Ahead!
