Oak Bay walkers excited about this blue moon month

Embrace the Night officially set for March 31

As March is a blue moon month, with the first March 1 and the second March 31, an impromptu night walk may spring up tonight.

Ron Carter, one of the organizers of the Embrace the Night walks, feels the pull of that first moon and may just meet up as the first full moon rises

The official Embrace the Night walk is is March 30. The full moon is March 31 but rises too late, so the first one-hour Embrace the Night walk is Friday, March 30, 7 p.m. and clear night willing, walkers will see the near full moon around 7 p.m.

The moon rises around 6 p.m. So don’t be surprised to see a gaggle of walkers gathering around 5 at the Salish Sea Sculpture at Turkey Head.
