Occasionally, the moon seems brighter and larger than any other time. The moon does not physically change, but the way it looks from Earth does. This change in appearance only happens when the moon comes very close to Earth while completing its monthly, oval-shaped, lunar orbit. If the moon is in the full phase when this closeness occurs, then a very spectacular full moon, approximately 14% larger and 30% brighter than usual, will be seen.

Hay Seed and City Slicker have discovered that this special moon will come into view two times during 2022! For a chance to win a $25 Amazon email gift card, complete these directions and questions:

January/February 2022 Super Sleuth

October Super Sleuth

The October Super Sleuth was centered around superstitious thinking. For a chance to win a $25 Amazon e-mail gift card, kids were asked: to identify the insect hidden, give the page number and provide one superstition related to the bug.

The correct answers are:

  • Ladybug
  • Page 6
  • If you let a ladybug land on you it’s supposed to bring you good luck.

Our winner is Wren Duke of Bentonville, Va. Congratulations, Wren!
