Thanks to everyone who attended Friends of Terwilliger’s Harvest Moon Social Saturday night. The moon made a spectacular appearance and Eagle Point offered a wonderful vantage point.
About 50 Friends of Terwilliger attended our event last night. The first hour was spent socializing while the sun was setting and enjoying Dairy Hill ice cream sandwiches. A little after 8 PM we began to see a hint of red-orange color on the horizon at the north flank of Mt Hood. As everyone gathered on the top “tier” of Eagle Point, the Harvest Moon began ascending the eastern sky and making a fantastic showing. Cameras and a telescope were on hand to document this occurrence. While the weather forecast earlier in the week wasn’t that positive, most of the clouds and all rain held off to allow us to have a great view of the moon. See photos.Thanks to our partners: Portland Parks and Recreation, Homestead Neighborhood Assoc, and Dairy Hill. We couldn’t have done it without you!
