Moon, musing, and music

Full Moon

The moon will be full tonight (4/21) at 11:23PM, and the weather forecast says it will be clear, so we can enjoy it.  Remember last September, when we had a “supermoon?”  Tonight we’ll have the opposite–a “micromoon.”

The Golden History Center is hosting a lecture tonight at 6PM:  How Golden Got Its Name.  This illustrated talk will inform and amuse with the stories behind interesting place names in Colorado. Learn the history of place names in Colorado like Parachute, Bonanza, Saguache, and Miracle Rock. Learn about the interesting characters who created these strange-sounding places with historian and storyteller Ed Weising.  Members $10; non-members $15.

rexrideoutRex Rideout will perform tomorrow at noon at the Arthur Lakes Library on the School of Mines campus.  The concert is free and open to the public.  1400 Illinois St. (map)

The Golden Library will have WeeDIY tomorrow morning (4/22) from 11-11:30.  Help your little one stretch his or her imagination in this hands-on learning program. We’ll explore, create, construct new things while growing through through experiential learning.  This is suitable for ages 3-5.

Saturday afternoon (4/23) from 3-5, the Library will host Cupcake Wars for grades 6-12.  This is WAR. With frosting. Choose your weapons and battle for honor and glory.
