    Name: Lavender Moon Night Sky at Lavender Hill Farm
    Date: August 4, 2019
    Time: 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Join us at Lavender Hill Farm for star guidance and stories just before sunset for the best views of the Lavender Moon. It will sweep over the western horizon toward the thickest part of the Milky Way, while the star lovers appear overhead. We will set the stage for a terrific evening of storytelling and stars with star Lore Historian Mary Stewart Adams, in the sweet and comforting proximity of lavender fields.

    August 4th is considered to be the moons most romantic time of the year. In the world of poets and story tellers, the Lavender Moon describes the waxing crescent sliver that follows a rare Black Moon (the second new moon in one calendar month). In the summer of 2019, a Lavender Moon will occur following the July 31st New Moon! In Chinese culture this is highlighted by the story of the star lovers Vega and Altair, who gaze longingly to one another across the mighty Milky Way river of stars.

    Ages: 8 & Up

    Please Bring: blankets or camp chairs. Meet in front of the barn. In the event of inclement weather, this event will take place in the barn. “If you cannot see the stars, you can be the stars!”

    Meet the Instructor: Mary Stewart Adams is a Star Lore Historian and founder of Michigan’s only International Dark Sky Park, in Mackinaw City. She has received numerous honors for her work and travels extensively, advocating for natural darkness and teaching a humanities-based approach to understanding the night sky. You can hear the story in the stars each week on Mary’s radio segment “The Storyteller’s Night Sky”, which airs every Monday on Interlochen Public Radio.
