MOH4 Reflection #34 Full Sap Moon / Blue Moon

Newcomers always welcome! Please join us!

Tonight, Saturday March 31, 2018 marks the second Blue Moon this calendar year. To commemorate such a rare occasion, the Moon Over Huronia Hash House Harriers will be gathering in the heart of Wyevale Ontario (5 Concession Rd 5. to be exact). First timers are always welcome. Things begin around 6pm as the local Kennel of Half-Minds gather to organize and prepare a Potluck Dinner. This continues until 7:30 when not so hungry Harriers, Half-Minds, Stragglers and the like, gather for the evening’s trail D’structions, chalk talk and introductions. With that the Pack sets forth on on into the evening, searching for the trail and snifting for sudzy yellow nectar, all the while reflecting about life under the Full Sap/Blue Moon.

Postscript ~ Hash Trash

The Easter sepulcher is a cavity in a mensa for containing relics of martyrs or a structure or a recess in some old churches in which the Eucharist was deposited with due ceremonies on Good Friday and taken out at Easter in commemoration of Christ’s entombment and Resurrection. But tonight’s trail had none of the like. Messiah decided to teach BackpackBoy-Dora how to lay trail and off they set into the wilds’ of Wyevale. Returning an hour or so later looking like drown rats, they boasted setting the best MOH4 Trail yet! Messiah must have been really tired from the exertion, for he immediately fell asleep on the couch, (or was was acting out some biblical reference about being in the cave for three days?). Either way the Half-Mind proceeded to fall asleep on the couch in the middle of everything, much to the chagrin of Samuel de Champain-in-the-Ass! Hosts Mudthumper & Out Of Mind treated the gathered Harriers to a succulent meal of pork tenderloin (done two ways), rice asparagus with bacon and onions, mixed greens salad with apples, almonds, dried cranberries and vinaigrette, followed with a homemade cherry pie dessert. Incredible! Thank you both for such a great effort, again! The shenanigans continued until Just Sam shouted out that she won’t be held accountable.  With that, Messiah sat up from his slumber on the couch and Christened her “Held Accountable”. So it goes… There were also virgins present: Just Ashley and Just Bernie, plus Returnee Just Jennifer. As the rain continued to pummel down, the Pack of Harriers decided to reflect on the Blue Moon from indoors and offer up blueberry jelloshot after blueberry jelloshot in toasting to the evening’s drowned out Full Blue Moon.

MOH4 Reflection #30 Long Nights’ Cold Moon

Sunday December 3, 2017

Hares: Kiss Me Or Get Out & Astrolabe

131 Richard Street Victoria Harbour


The Full Cold Moon; or the Full Long Nights Moon – December During this month the winter cold fastens its grip, and nights are at their longest and darkest. It is also sometimes called the Moon before Yule. The term Long Night Moon is a doubly appropriate name because the midwinter night is indeed long, and because the Moon is above the horizon for a long time. The midwinter full Moon has a high trajectory across the sky because it is opposite a low Sun.

MOH4 Reflection #29 Beaver Moon

Saturday November 4, 2017

Full Beaver Moon – November This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.

 

MOH4 Reflection #28 Hunter’s Moon

Thursday Oct 5, 2017

Full Hunter’s Moon or Full Harvest Moon – October This full Moon is often referred to as the Full Hunter’s Moon, Blood Moon, or Sanguine Moon. Many moons ago, Native Americans named this bright moon for obvious reasons. The leaves are falling from trees, the deer are fattened, and it’s time to begin storing up meat for the long winter ahead. Because the fields were traditionally reaped in late September or early October, hunters could easily see fox and other animals that come out to glean from the fallen grains. Probably because of the threat of winter looming close, the Hunter’s Moon is generally accorded with special honour, historically serving as an important feast day in both Western Europe and among many Native American tribes.

Introduction

On August 21, 2017 a total eclipse of the sun will be visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses the United States. The path of the moon’s umbral shadow begins in the northern Pacific and crosses the U.S. from west to east through parts of the following states: Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, and South Carolina. The moon’s penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering most of North America.

This special web page – a reprint of a similar page at eclipsewise.com by Fred Espenak – contains preliminary information about the 2017 total eclipse of the sun. It will be updated with more information as eclipse day approaches.

The EclipseWise Prime Page for the August 21, 2017 eclipse presents detailed information on this event including the primary eclipse characteristics, conjunction times, geocentric coordinates of the sun and moon, lunar libration values, penumbral and umbral shadow contact data, central line data, polynomial Besselian elements and additional links.

Intermediate Detail Maps of the Path of Totality

The following maps show the path of the 2017 total solar eclipse in intermediate detail for locations across the United States. The path of totality is shaded for clarity, and lines of maximum eclipse have been plotted (in yellow) at 10-minute intervals. The Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the duration of totality (minutes:seconds) and the Sun’s altitude (degrees) is given on the eclipse central line at 10-minute intervals. The maps also include cities, major towns, highways, rivers, lakes and parks.

Maximum Detail Maps of the Path of Totality

The following maps show the path of the 2017 total solar eclipse in maximum detail for the United States and by state. Within the path of totality, curves of constant duration have been plotted for the total phase. Note that the constant duration curves are calculated using the exact shape of the Moon. Mountains and valleys can shorten or lengthen the duration of totality by 1-3 seconds. The maps also include the general terrain highlighting major towns, cities, and highways.

These maximum detail maps were prepared by Michael Zeiler (Esri) using a high level CAD/GIS (Computer Aided Drawing / Graphic Information System) with data provided by Fred Espenak (NASA/GSFC) and Xavier Jubier. These poster-size maps can be saved to your computer for printing. You will have to scale the print size in your printer dialog to fit them to the page size you are printing.

Eclipse Bulletin: Total Solar Eclipse of 2017 August 21

Eclipse Bulletin: Total Solar Eclipse of 2017 August 21 is the ultimate guide to this highly anticipated event. Written by two of the leading experts on eclipses, Fred Espenak and Jay Anderson, the bulletin is a treasure trove of facts on every conceivable aspect of the eclipse. The exact details about the path of the Moon’s shadow can be found in a series of tables containing geographic coordinates, times, altitudes, and physical dimensions. A set of high resolution maps plot the total eclipse path across the USA. They show hundreds of cities and towns in the path, the location of major roads and highways, and the duration of totality with distance from the central line.

Local circumstances tables for more than 1000 cities across the USA provide times of each phase of the eclipse along with the eclipse magnitude, duration and Sun’s altitude. Additional tables cover the eclipse circumstances for cities in Canada, Mexico, Central and South America and Europe. An exhaustive climatological study identifies areas along the eclipse path where the highest probability of favorable weather may be found. A travelogue highlights key locations in the eclipse track from Oregon through South Carolina. Finally, comprehensive information is presented about solar filters and how to safely observe and photograph the eclipse.

The Portal To The Universe Blog discusses the 2017 Eclipse Bulletin in more detail.

MOH4 Reflection #27 Corn Moon

Wednesday September 6, 2017

Full Corn Moon or Full Harvest Moon – September This full moon’s name is attributed to Native Americans because it marked when corn was supposed to be harvested. Most often, the September full moon is actually the Harvest Moon, which is the full Moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox.

In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October. At the peak of harvest, farmers can work late into the night by the light of this Moon. Usually the full Moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night, but for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the Moon seems to rise at nearly the same time each night: just 25 to 30 minutes later across the U.S., and only 10 to 20 minutes later for much of Canada and Europe. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice the chief Indian staples are now ready for gathering.
