SUNLIGHT MOONLIGHT SAME THING (autumnal moon viewing and tea experience)

September 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

smudge studio/OBSERVATORY invites you to join us for SUNLIGHT MOONLIGHT SAME THING, an autumnal moon viewing and tea experience at Steamboat Landing Gazebo, Belfast Harbor, Friday, September 9th, 002022.

The micro-production staged to coincide with the rising of September’s Harvest Moon, will begin at 7:00 p.m. and conclude by 8:30 p.m.

We will share an experience of the cosmological force of light as it intimately shapes life on Earth. We will sip tea under the sun’s flood of photons as they stream past Earth, over our heads, through the so-called “dark” night sky. And we will celebrate those relatively few photons that reflect brilliantly off the full moon, back to Earth, to fill our eyes/minds with “Harvest Moon.”

Our tea will be a special Japanese hojicha—an autumnally toasty, warm, low-caffeine tea. Traditionally, Harvest Moon events in Japan invite participants to reflect upon and express their experience by composing a short poem while sipping tea and moon viewing. We invite you to bring paper and your favorite writing instrument and to share any poems that might emerge during SUNLIGHT MOONLIGHT SAME THING.

Location: Steamboat Landing Gazebo, Belfast Harbor
RSVP is required (limited to 12 guests) to
Tea and tea sweets by donation.
