Unusual Crescent Moon - 12-3-16 Have you noticed anything unusual with the crescent moon in the last few CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFOnights? For one thing, the disc of the moon that's supposed to be in darkness is lightly visible. The other thing is the appearance of a glow. As it turns out, the first person to explain what we are looking at was Leonardo da Vince. Back in 1510 he realized that the lunar terrain was being illuminated by sunlight reflected from earth. Copernicus' sun-centered theory of the solar system wasn't published until 1543, twenty-four years after Leonardo died.

VFR In November 2016... in the Dark 11-29-16:  Aviation publications are filled with commentaries and advice on navigating the airspace and all the latest gadgets for the glass cockpit. How about ADS-B in and out, transponders with squitters, iPads with apps, the list goes on. But for someone just trying to fly as a hobby and a fun thing to do, it's all about getting back to basics and maintaining the basic requirements and skills for piloting you aircraft and navigating the airspace with its barriers of the Class Airspace System of "B", "C", & "D". Fortunately for Skyhaven pilots, you do not need permission to land and take-off from a fast talking air traffic controller, but that doesn't mean the airspace is safe. It's more than a good idea to get a pilot briefing to ensure a TFR or any last minute restriction is eminent. So, after your pilot briefing and preparation, during this time of the year it's probably dark out and you will be updating your night flying skills.
