The equinox marks the start of autumn, but it isn’t quite 50/50 day and night
The moon waxes in the evening sky this week, with first-quarter occurring on the 22nd. That day has been dubbed
International Observe the Moon Night. Astronomers, educators and sky enthusiasts from around the world have set the date to encourage people to appreciate our only natural satellite. For teachers, students or the curious, log onto www.observethemoonnight.org for events, activities and moon-related topics. Or simply take a moment to gaze at this wonder, and give a wink in honor of Neil Armstrong.
