International Observe the Moon Night “Under the Same Moon”

September 13, 2012

Join the staff of the Museum of Nature and Science at a special Sky Safari moon observing night on Saturday, September 22. The event will be held at the City Hall parking structure on the north end of Campo Street in Las Cruces and will begin at 8:00 pm.

 

See the Moon as never before!  Join the Museum and the NMSU Astronomy Department in celebrating the 3rd annual International Observe the Moon Night with activities for all ages including scale models of the moon/Earth, lunar phases, a video of the moon’s surface and a short presentation of lunar features you may see! Bring your questions or your own telescope and join us as we explore the moon!

 

The International Observe the Moon Night Team consists of scientists, educators, and Moon enthusiasts from government, non-profit organizations, and businesses throughout the United States and across the globe.  This event has created the opportunity for people to take notice of the Moon’s beauty and share that experience with one another. Through International Observe the Moon Night, we hope to instill in the public a sense of wonderment and curiosity about our Moon.

 

Please call the museum at (575) 522-3120 for more information. Participants are required to provide their own transportation.  Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.  Sky Safari is funded by the Southern New Mexico Natural History Foundation (SNMNHF).
