Mt. Pisgah Summer Solstice

Friday, June 21, 2013
Leader: Janet Jacobsen
Hike: 3 miles, 1000 ft (Moderate)

Thirteen of us joined the crowd for the 8:59pm sunset to view the sun rays glow through the slot in the sighting pedestal. The moonrise at 7:15 pm one day before the Super Moon meant that we hiked down under a spectacular moon. Back at the gate, we sighted a planet and a reddish twinkling star near the moon. They were later identified as Venus and Antares in the constellation Scorpio.
