Halloween is not only about putting on a costume, but it's about finding the imagination and costume within ourselves. If human beings had genuine courage, they'd wear their costumes every day of the year, not just on Halloween. Halloween wraps fear in innocence, as though it were a slightly sour sweet.
Let terror, then, be turned into a treat…. On Halloween, witches come true; wild ghosts escape from dreams. Each monster dances in the park. Magic is really very simple, all you've got to do is want something and then let yourself have it. I love Halloween, and I love that feeling: the cold air, the spooky dangers lurking around the corner. Let terror, then, be turned into a treat When the witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers 'tis near Halloween.

Of course, the crescent moon is a telescopic showpiece in itself, and once the sky becomes sufficiently dark, you'll likely be able to see what is sometimes referred to as "the old moon in the new moon's arms," otherwise known as Earthshine.
This is when the portion of the moon that isn't illuminated by sunlight glows with a faint, yet readily detectable bluish-gray glow — almost as if the moon were some translucent ball being illuminated from within. Tell your young visitors to pretend that they are astronauts on the moon's surface. If they were on that part of the moon where the bright crescent is, the sun would be in the sky illuminating the lunar landscape, but if they were on the dark part of the moon , there would be no sun.
Rather, what would be in the sky would be a nearly full Earth, appearing almost four times larger than the moon appears to us. Sunlight reflecting off the clouds and oceans would make our earth appear dozens of times brighter than the full moon, and that Earthshine would light up the surrounding mountains and craters on the moon with an eerie blue-gray glow. That's why we can glimpse the dark part of the moon on Halloween night.
Saturn is another planet to look for, situated about 17 degrees to the upper left of the moon. Your clenched fist held at arm's length measures about 10 degrees in width, so roughly 1.
Its rings are still wide open, with the north face tilted some 25 degrees to our line of sight.

He spoke up loud and slowly enough to make sure that we all could hear and understand him.
We've been on other tours where the guide rushed through everything and we missed half of what they said. Jeff was a great story teller and you could tell that he is passionate about Salem and wants to share his passion with his guests.
He told us about some very interesting and fascinating stories. The tour had the perfect haunted feel for an October night in Salem. Just as we got there the wind kicked up and it started to rain a little which was a great addition to the mood. Jeff was an absolute treat. He knew his history but also brought excitement into each of his stories and locations we were taken to. Jeff seemed very knowledgable about Salem in general and had great local recommendations as well.
This tour was one of our favorite parts of the trips! Be careful though The ghosts we encountered are still haunting us all the way back in Virginia ;. My friends and I are in town doing Spongebob the musical in Boston and we had the pleasure of having Jeff as our tour guide. He was so animated, knowledgeable, funny, and made the chilly evening warm and entertaining. Ten outta ten would recommend! Profile JOIN. Log in to get trip updates and message other travelers.
