  2. Find the error: Every Winter, my friend Sam heads out into the Mojave desert and sings Bob Dylan songs by the light of the moon.
    Don't capitalize winter (or any other season), but do capitalize Desert because it's part of an official place name. And while the names of planets are usually capitalized, sun and moon are not.
