We're moving!

We're moving our new stories to Denison.edu, the college's super-sweet mothership. Over time, we'll be moving some of our best past stories from TheDEN over there too. In the meantime, we've made available an archive of all stories here. This archive will be available for a few months before this site is permanently shut down. See you at Denison.edu! - June 2016

Marvelous night for a moondance

News, weather, and social media sites have been bombarded with photos of the first “supermoon” of 2014, which popped up last weekend. It’s kind of a big deal to sky-watchers and photographers alike, as there are only three nights this year when the supermoon will appear, based on to its proximity to the Earth. As it snuggles up to us, it appears larger than usual in the night sky. (If you missed it, you can catch it again on Aug. 10 and Sept. 9.)

Even though we took this video the evening before the official supermoon, which showed up on July 12, we’re pretty sure it rivals any image out there — but maybe that has something to do with the scenery. For those unfamiliar with campus, that’s Swasey Chapel, a Denison landmark since 1924.
