Cosmic Events for your 2018 Camping Calendar

Nothing like a cosmic camping event!
One of my fondest memories of camping in the Adirondacks was a night spent in the middle of Moss Lake in Eagle Bay. Andy, my springer, and I had set up our tent then paddled out to just under the osprey nest parked in a tree in the center of the lake. It was August. The Perseid meteor showers... amazing.

Moss Lake is a beauty... no sites for vintage campers, sadly, but it does boast 9 primitive sites for tents. Get there early Friday morning if you hope to secure one for the weekend. Moss Lake was the home to a Girls camp from 1923-1972 — a historical marker tells the story. ) It includes an easy 2.5 mile loop around the lake. Saw my first wild MINK when hiking there recently. From the intersection of Route 28 and Big Moose Road in Eagle Bay, 1 mile south of downtown Inlet, follow Big Moose Road for just over 2.25 miles to the Moss Lake trailhead and parking area on the left. The Adirondack Mountain Club offers further information (CLICK HERE).

People around the world converge at the Stonehenge, England to celebrate the June Solstice.

Aug 11: Partial Solar Eclipse

The third solar eclipse in 2018, and the second of the season, is another partial solar eclipse. See it in north-eastern Europe, north-western Asia, northern parts of Canada, Greenland, the Atlantic, and the Arctic, or see our animation of the eclipse in the link.

The Full Moon closest to the September Equinox is called the Harvest Moon. In the Northern Hemisphere, the time between successive moonrises will be shorter around this period.

Orionids are the second meteor shower in October. The best time to see these shooting stars is just after midnight and before the Sun rises.
