Getting to Know the Moon

For centuries the Moon has been an inspiration for poets and lovers, a scourge for some astronomers, and a scapegoat for human misbehavior. With a lunar eclipse occurring next month*, let us learn about its origin and its features, the role it plays in the tides and eclipses, and examine some information we have often taken as fact. Can it really turn blue or blood red? Does it really get supersized? Does the full Moon make us crazy or grow hair and fangs? Where is the Man in the Moon, and is he having an affair with Wilma Flintstone?

  1. Looking forward to Mr Poirier’s presentation on Polar Bears!! Climate change is and will continue to have an impact on all of us.

  2. Is the June 13 the walk in the marsh at 6.30 am or pm?

  3. Hello
    I was wondering if I could sign up for emails to keep me informed as a back yard birder sure could use some company with the same interest
    Thanks in advance Sheila Whalen

  4. Hi Sheila,

    Yes I can add you to the club’s email list. There are not a great deal of postings regarding feeders but some of our members are very keen birders.
    There are a number of avenues. Have you checked out Project Feeder Watch? You could join eBird and see what some local birders might be posting for sightings. You could join the Nature NB Listserv for provincial comments. If you have any questions about these please send me an email, gadd1313@nb.sympatico.ca Peter
