Tonight: New Moon Circle, Meteor Shower & Ravi Shankar remembered

From: Emily
Sent on: Thursday, December 13, 2012 11:18 AM

December's New Moon is Thursday December 13th.  As the New Moon appears in the constellation Sagittarius, tonight we will gather under the Bodhi tree to drum and dance.

Today is also special because the annual Geminids meteor shower will reach its peak late on Thursday night and into early Friday morning.  In the Moon's absence from the dark sky this will only enhance your chance of seeing a shooting star, even in the light polluted city sky.  But wait, there's more... From EarthSky.org "NASA is saying there’s a second possible meteor shower that could significantly boost the number of meteors you’ll see.  The source of the possible new shower is Comet 46P/Wirtanen.  Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office says debris left in Wirtanen’s orbit might produce as many as 30 meteors per hour, added to the 100 meteors per hour from the Geminids." That would be an awesome meteor show, so keep your eyes to the sky tonight as we drum, dance and commune with each other.

 

 

PANDIT RAVI SHANKAR {1920 - 2012}

Tonight we also gather and pay our respects to the great sitar maestro, Ravi Shankar, who died in San Diego Tuesday aged 92.  Dubbed the Godfather of World Music by his most famous student, George Harrison, Shankar learned to play several Indian classical instruments in his teens and began touring abroad in the 1950s, introducing Indian ragas to audiences in Europe and the U.S.

Tonight we honor Ravi Shankar's gifts to the world as we play our own world music.
