Last week I wrote about a late 19th century Waterloo by-law that called for the application of a moonlight schedule whereby it was legislated for local people to use the light of the full moon to guide their lives for the few days of the month when it shone.
Exceptions were permitted during nights when the sky was not so clear.
This historical nugget is listed on the city’s site.
It certainly gives me something to think about in the 21st century!

The full moon is approaching–Saturday is the day! Take a step outside to look around your area. Find a place, if possible, to see how the world around you looks in the full-moon light.
