It will appear like the glow from a forest fire at about 8.30, slowly rising behind our hill. The moon by 9 will illuminate the remains of the ancient temple. By midnight its luminescence will appear as a radiant pathway over the sea.
The Greek Ministry of Culture has arranged that 115 Archeological sites and monuments will be open free of charge till midnight on the night of the august full moon and for a few nights before and after. The Acropolis will close however at 8pm. A few years ago those in charge decided the slippery marble steps were too dangerous to be climbed in the moonlight.
Many of the sites will be bathed in artificial light as well as being lit up by the silvery moonlight. All sorts of magical musical and theatrical events will take place around the country.
At ancient Olympia, home of the Olympic games , you'll hear a concert by the Army General Staff Philharmonic (if you're in the area). I would love to hear tenor Mario Frangoulis at the ancient Minoan Palace of Malia, but that's down in Crete.
Nothing seems to be planned for Poseidon's Temple on Poros this full moon. The piano recitals that usually take place there are scheduled for later in the month. But there will be a full moon party on Neorion beach and popular 70's greek singer Paschalis will be entertaining the crowds.
