Dr. Richard Shiels, former Director of  the Newark Earthworks Center, has written an informative article for the Newark Advocate about the upcoming Octagon Open House on October 11th
and lunar alignments at Octagon State Memorial, part of the Newark Earthworks.

"The octagon built 2000 years ago in what is today Newark and the octagon built in Chillicothe about the same time both align with all eight of these lunar standstills.

This fall, the moon is at roughly the halfway point of the 18.6 year cycle. The northern and southern maximum alignments occurred at the beginning of the cycle, in 2005 and 2006. The minimums are occurring this fall."
