Aligning with the Heavens in Ohio

By Linda Tancs

The largest surviving prehistoric effigy mound is Serpent Mound, located in Peebles, Ohio.  The undulating serpent-shaped earthwork stretches for almost 1350 feet, evoking over the years interpretations related to mysticisms and heavenly alignments.  No wonder, then, that the park grounds are open for extended hours today–the spring equinox–marking Earth’s balance between day and night, a time of many rituals and traditions.  Be prepared for an astronomically good time.
