Astronomer to join walk under the blue moon
The Lake Kawana Moonwalking group will wear blue as they stroll under the blue moon on Friday 29 June, meeting at 7.30pm at the viewing platform, Sportsmans Pde, at Lake Kawana.
Caloundra City residents are invited to moonwalk their way to good health with a walk around Lake Kawana under June's blue moon on Friday 29 June.
If weather conditions are good, a local astronomer will bring a telescope to enable walkers to view the night sky at the viewing platform on Sportsmans Parade at Lake Kawana.
Caloundra City Mayor Don Aldous said Moonwalking is part of the National Heart Foundation's free Just Walk It program, and is funded by the Queensland Government to get more Queenslanders active.
"Moonwalks are a great opportunity to get out for the evening and enjoy the health benefits of fresh air and physical activity, as well as meet new friends or spend time with family," Cr Aldous said.
Cr Aldous said Council is looking for volunteers to act as walk leaders at Kings Beach and Currimundi Lake.
Moonwalks occur on each full moon at various locations across the City. All walks start at 7.30pm for around 45 minutes. To avoid weekends, walks may be just prior to, or after, the actual full moon date.
Participants should bring a torch, water bottle and dress for comfort, and arrive at least five minutes early. Walks are cancelled in the event of persistent rain or storms.
