Astronomy in the Park - International Observe the Moon Night

Saturday, October 5, 2019

On October 5th, we are joining forces with the prestigious Lunar and Planetary Institute (Universities Space Research Association) 3600 Bay Area Blvd. (at Middlebrook Drive) for a totally free and fun evening of activities for all and (of course) amateur astronomy from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm rain or shine. As usual, we will have telescopes to show: • Major constellations and asterisms and their legends • Observation of the moon and visible planets (Jupiter and Saturn) • Binocular astronomy demonstrations • Flyers describing the moon and its phases, the scale of the solar system, the major constellations and asterisms visible now, a list of relevant URLs, free astronomy software from the net, etc. • There will also be lots of activities for all ages inside the building.
