Have you ever wondered about the moon's ever-changing path and appearance in the night sky? During the winter the sun takes a lower path across the sky, while the moon rides high. These and other aspects of lunar activity will be explored as part of a free program presented by park volunteer Patricia Shaw at 5:00 pm on Saturday, January 26, 2013, at the Huffman Prairie Interpretive Center, located at Wright Brothers Hill on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Shaw will provide tips on keeping track of the moon throughout the changing seasons and will explore moon phases, daytime moon sighting, crescent moons, and what causes an eclipse. If the weather is clear, the program will culminate with a chance to observe the rise of winter's full "Wolf Moon". In the event of bad weather, the program will be held on Sunday, January 27 at 6:00 pm. We invite you to deepen your connections with the world around us and with our nearest satellite. The program is open to the public and is free of charge. For more information please contact the park at 937-225-7705.
