Moon Walks

Walk at night, by the light of the moon. Everything looks different in the dark. Be sure to wear light-colored clothing so you can be seen more easily by traffic.  Reflective tape on clothing is a good idea.

Bring a flashlight but instruct your children not to flash it in windows of houses you pass by, into the eyes of other night-walkers you pass, or into the eyes of drivers of oncoming cars. In fact, if you want to get the most from your night vision try not to use your flashlight. Your eyes will adjust to the darkness after a few minutes and you will be able to see quite well without the assistance of the flashlight. Moonlight and city street lights will provide all the light you need.

Notice the stars.  Look for night critters like owls and raccoons.  Listen to the sounds, what do you hear? Can you hear birds chirping? Is it more or less quiet than it is in the daylight?
