International Observe the Moon Night

 

International Observe the Moon Night

Join us to celebrate the moon at “International Observe the Moon Night” on Saturday, October 12, from 7 to 10pm.  On that night, people all over the world will gather at observatories to gaze at the moon. Here in Tucson we’ll have a big event at the Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium.  There will be telescopes set up on the UA Mall in front of Flandrau, there so you can see amazing close-up views of the moon.  Inside Flandrau we’ll have moon-related activities for kids and families, and two talks by local scientists about the moon in the planetarium theater.  Admission to Flandrau will be free!

International Observe the Moon Night is organized by the Planetary Science Institute in collaboration with Flandrau, the UA Astronomy Club, the National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO), the Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association (TAAA), and the Girl Scouts.  It will be a fun discovery event for the whole family, so come join the celebration and feel the moonshine!
