The Super Moon slowly coming into its glory from pale disk to brilliant globe in the night sky stole the show at the Observatory in Montville, Ohio on Friday evening July 12th. The grounds of the observatory include a vast meadow with the four corners of a pyramid positioned to give a clear idea of just how big those structures really are. There is a small classroom building on the grounds and the Rangers are friendly and happy to answer questions. It is a family friendly environment, with free parking and is considered a class Silver dark park – which means very little ambient light interferes with viewing.
Anyone who is able to may climb the ladder to the telescope to view whatever is being featured – Wendy and Sam both went up and saw the view of Saturn and Mars.
The next Super Moon is expected to appear on Sunday August 10th.
