Join the night walk Monday

The third and final Super Moon of the summer takes place Monday night (Sept. 8).

The third and final Super Moon of the summer takes place Monday night (Sept. 8).

“Last month we walked along our beautiful eastern shoreline to enjoy a clear warm summer evening, basked in both sunlight and moonlight,” said organizer Ron Carter.

A Super Moon is when the full moon coincides with having its closest orbit to earth, creating the illusion of being up to 14 per cent larger than the average full moon.

The September Super Moon rises at 7:21 p.m., just before the start of the one-hour night walk through Oak Bay.

More than 50 people attended last month’s walk.

The walk begins at 7:30 p.m. and ends approximately 90-minutes later at the Oak Bay Marina (Turkey Head) parking lot, on the south side.

The route crosses Beach Drive to Windsor Road, then heads east and south to the top of Anderson Hill Park to again see the moon from this magnificent vantage point.

The walk includes some stairs and gravel paths, so attendees are advised to wear appropriate footwear.

“Prepare for the forecast and if you like, bring binoculars to enhance the experience to see the full moon up really close or catch some of the interesting feathered fauna along the shoreline,” said Carter.

The walk goes rain or shine. More details are available at
