Join us for the Longest Night of the Year!
Sunday Dec. 23, 2018: Hares: Messiah & Professor Dude
It’s not hard to understand where the name of this moon comes from, as December is the month in which the winter cold fastens its grip on this part of the world. On occasion, this moon was also called the Moon Before Yule. Sometimes, this moon is referred to as the Full Long Nights Moon, which is appropriate because the winter solstice (the longest night of the year) occurs in December, and the moon is above the horizon for a long time. In December in the Northern Hemisphere, the full moon makes its highest arc across the sky because it’s diametrically opposite to the low sun. In fact, the moment of the winter solstice comes just over 19 hours before this full moon, at 5:23 p.m. EST on Dec. 21. Peak fullness occurs at12:49 p.m. EST (1749 GMT).

Friday Nov. 23, 2018: Hare: Messiah
At this point of the year, it’s time to set beaver traps before the swamps freeze, 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 active in their preparation for winter. It’s also called the Frosty Moon. Fullness occurs at 12:39 a.m. EST (0539 GMT).
Wed Oct. 24, 2018: Hares: Messiah & Loosie Stooley
With the leaves falling and the deer fattened, it’s now time to hunt. Because the fields have been reaped, hunters can ride over the stubble and more easily see foxes, as well as other animals, which can be caught for a banquet after the harvest. Fullness occurs at 12:45 p.m. EDT (1645 GMT).
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 honor, historically serving as an important feast day in both Western Europe and among many Native American tribes.

New Song of the Month:
Monday Sept. 24, 2018: The Full Harvest Moon
Traditionally, this designation goes to the full moon that occurs closest to the autumnal (fall) equinox. The Harvest Moon usually comes in September, but (on average) once or twice per decade, it will fall in early October. At the peak of the harvest, farmers can work into the night by the light of this moon. Usually, the 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 each night 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 Native American staples — are now ready for gathering. Fullness occurs at 10:52 p.m. EDT (0252 GMT on Sept. 25).
Monday Aug 27, 2018 The Full Sturgeon Moon rained out!
This full moon occurs when this large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, like Lake Champlain, are most readily caught. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon, because when the moon rises, it looks reddish through the sultry summer haze. It is also known as the Green Corn Moon or the Grain Moon.Fullness occurs at 7:56 a.m. EDT (1156 GMT).

Lunar Eclipse July 27: The Full Buck Moon
This full moon occurs in the month when the new antlers of buck deer push out from their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur. It was also often called the Full Thunder Moon, because it’s when thunderstorms are the most frequent in this part of the world. Sometimes, it’s also called the Full Hay Moon.
There will also be a total eclipse of the moon on July 27. However, it will not be visible in North America because it will be happening during the daytime, when the moon is below the horizon. Much of the Eastern Hemisphere — from Europe and Africa, eastward across Asia to Japan, Indonesia and much of Australasia — will be able to watch this rather exceptionally long totality, which will last 103 minutes. Because the moon arrives at apogee (its farthest point from Earth in its orbit) about 14 hours earlier, this will also be the smallest full moon of 2018; it will appear 12.3 percent smaller than the full moon of Jan. 1. Fullness occurs at 4:20 p.m. EDT (2020 GMT); the eclipse will peak at 3:21 EDT (1921 GMT).

Get out of the city and into the country to reflect under this month’s Full Pink Moon with the Moon Over Huronia Hash House Harriers. You’ll be glad you came!
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.
