From page 1 with a knee injury in the game and the team is thinking about him and wishing him a speedy recovery. It is never easy to lose a game, but the team is moving forward with heads held high and back to work this week preparing for the next game at home again on Friday. This is a great group of young men and they are united to become better football players and solid athletes. Practices are up-tempo, instruction and learn- ing are constantly in motion, and along with a lot of football, there is a lot of sweat, push ups and running. To a man, all of these guys are there for each other and as coaches, they appreciate how hard they" are work- ing and the drama-free commitment that they have made. Keep on fight- ing Lancers and never give up! Tje next game is tonight, Friday, Sept. 29, at home against Foothills Christian at Joe Machado field at 5 p.m. Come out and support the team.

It was new and invisible last Wednesday, September 20, but instead of passing in front of the sun, as it did on August 2i, producing a solar eclipse, it was substantially above the sun, and no eclipse happened. That is because the ~. moons orbit is tilted by five degrees to the suns path in the sky. One of the interesting aspects of observing the autumnal moon ~er its new phase is that it remains virtually hidden from view. You may have just noticed its increasing brilhance in the evening sky during the last * few days, even though it is no longer a silvery slivcr of a crescent, but well along toward its first quarter phase, half onhalf off, sunlight on the right half of the moon (Wednesday). The reason for this lunar elusiveness in the late summer and fall seasons results from the moons orbit which at this time of the year is slanted at a very shallow angle to the horizon. The moon moves about 13 degrees per day while it revolves around the Earth, but its orbital progress does not greatly change its distance above the horizon. Therefore, the Earths rotation (spinning) will set the ! moos at nearly the same time for several days after its new phase. By the time the moon is full, nearly 15 days later, and is easily visible in the evening sky, the same conditions still apply, and the moon rises at nearly the same time for several nights in a row. The effect is even more pronounced in Europe where the moons orbital plane is even less inclined to the horizon and differences in moonrise times can be as little as 10 minutes. Farmers harveaing crops would be able to continue their work uninterrupted as western twilight blended into the brilliance of a full moon rising in the east. Full moons were named, and the one occurring closest to the autumnal equinox which had the minimal changes in rising times was called the Harvest Moon, one of dozens o f titles that Luna in her full phase received throughout the passage of a year. Usually the date falls in September, but every third year, it happens in October. Watch this week as the moon continues to wax (grow) in brightness. On October 5, it reaches its full phase, the Harvest Moon for 2017. Next year, it is back to September on the 24th, nearly the best Harvest Moon that can possibly occur. If you think that the full or nearly full moon is not bright enough to harvest crops, take a ride into the country around the time of full moon and bring along a book. Find a location untainted by street lamps but under moonlight. Let your eyes adjust to the lower levels of light and see if you can read the printed word by the illumination of the silvery moon. Ill bet you can! www.astronnmy.org THE CATALINA ISLANDER Friday, Sept. 29, 2017 i 11
