Spooky season is almost over but Halloween is finally here, and some people do not have anything planned  so here are some places to go and things to do to get your thrill on this Halloween.

1. The haunting of the Wellness Center, get your spook on at Hollywood High’s very own Wellness Center. Treats will be provided as well as some scares, it’s going on from 3:30 to 4:30 on Halloween day.

2. Go trick or treating, nothing is better than free candy and showing off your costume to many people. Some good places to go trick or treating and test your luck to get some full size candy bars are Hollywood Hills, Eagle Rock, Beverly Hills, and Hancock Park.

3. Los Angeles Haunted Hay Ride, located in Griffith Park, is a place where you get to go through some spooky mazes and of course go on a hayride. Prices for tickets vary and it’s open from 7pm to 12 pm.

4. If you’re not into going out but still don’t want to miss out Halloween, stay in and have a movie marathon. Grab some snacks and some friends (or your pet) and binge watch some classic Halloween movies.

The Crimson Chronicle hopes you have a fun and safe Halloween.

The Space X Falcon 9 rocket launched Sunday night which caused a strange looking light into the nights sky. This may come as a shock to some people but these lights were not from any aliens or UFOs. According to the staff at Space X, The atmospheric conditions were the reason that this visual and stunning display lit up our sky. The two staged rocket blasted right on time at 7:21 pm PT from California’s Vandenberg Air Force base. Minutes after the launch, the rockets second stage separated from the first stage which is why you might have seen two bright white lights in the eye catching ”cloud”.

 

Social media immediately responded to this launch with pictures, videos, and conspiracy theories. For many people, this launch was unexpected and surprising. ”I was on the freeway when I first saw the launch,” said Cristian Huante, a senior in TCA. ”At first i thought we were going to get nuked.”
