Notes from Carol Stepanchuk, CCS Outreach Coordinator

PARTY TIME
It's that time again—to prepare for the annual Moon Festival, 15th day of the 8th lunar month; for those on the solar calendar, Oct. 3rd. Grab a friend, gaze at the moon and break into a box of moon cakes—remember to savor in small bites.

Lunar Retrospective: Two years ago almost to the day, China launched its first lunar orbiter, named after the goddess of the moon—Chang E. This legendary being didn't just sit around—as a mortal, she, too, was "launched" from the earth after swallowing the elixir of immortality and rising to the starry heavens.

RESOURCES
An annotated web directory to museums and arts-related organizations on China and Asia plus sites for blogging and browsing on China—current events, culture and global connections—is available by going to the CCS outreach website; http://ii.umich.edu/ccs/resources/outreach "Website Directory"
