For the party, we’re asking for a $5 donation at the door ($10 for families), plus HPIC will have a bar offering wine and local draft beer for a small donation.
Details: (the parade and Sage Comet times may not be exact!)
6:15pm. Assemble in parking lot for parade
(part of the parking lot will be cordoned off for the Sage Comet, and re-opened after the performance. There is lots of street parking, especially a block north of HPIC if there is no more room in the parking lot.)
6:30pm. Not-So-Silent Night Parade
7:00pm. Sage Comet
7:15pm. Doors open for potluck/entry to party
8:00pm. Music begins
12:00pm. Midnight celebration
After midnight. Open jam – bring your voice and an instrument to join in.
But please bring a potluck dish to share, your beverage of choice, an unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots, and a donation for the Food Bank! We will have live music by professional musician and Highland Park resident Danny Figgins.
And we will be using the dishes donated by our friends and neighbors at this fall’s Harvest Dinner.
When the sky is so dark! From Astronomy Today’s Night Sky Guide:
On December 10, 2011, the Moon will slip completely into Earth’s shadow, viewable for residents in Australia and Asia. Europe and most of Africa will get to see part of the lunar eclipse at Moonrise, while North America can watch some of the eclipse at Moonset.
On December 10, the moon will be full at 6:36am in Seattle, and moonset will be at 7:52am.
