Big Moon This Year

Postby Token » Tue Jan 31, 2012 6:12 am

So there will be no excuse for missing darkwads when operating your vehicle of choice. Run-em-down!

August 30 - 31 is the 100% phase of Swiss cheese.

Moon-rise is ~ 18:00 & 18:20 on the two days and goes all night strong.

I predict crazy stuff will go down Thursday & Friday.

Would it be too cheesy to save a case of Blue Moon specifically for the occasion?

I'm amazed we haven't see any picture of people's naked rears in this thread yet. This drawing is getting us all off our game.

Sweet!!!!! Done... and Done!!!!

Well, actually, as I think about it there are a lot of different 'moon' related beers. And honestly, Blue Moon isn't that great on Playa, too think and heavy.
But since its made by Coors, we can get it super cheap now. Hum? Luckily we have months to figure it out.

Yes! This is so amazing!
Just yesterday I went to WolframAlpha to find out what phase the moon will be during Burning Man.

Guess you could say I am a full moon lunatic... :)

In 2010 when I first saw the moon rising over Harveywood, I actually thought that moon was fake. Talk about surreal.
