Bring your questions about the working of the sun, moon and earth.

Update on the Chavez Memorial.

David Cooper will talk on the subject of Fall Equinox rituals of the world and the values that these rituals enforce. This year the Fall Equinox falls just after the new moon, which also means just as the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and the Jewish holy month of Tishrei are beginning. This is one of the rare years when Tishrei and Ramadan exactly coincide. Why do they coincide only every 4 decades? The manner in which the lunar calendar is linked (or not linked) to the solar calendar is what determines this phenomenon. More about this as we gather on September 23rd.
