International Observe the Moon Night, 2014
September 6, 2014 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm| $4 - $17
Join us to celebrate International Observe the Moon Night at UA’s Flandrau Science Center and Planetarium. Organized in collaboration with the Planetary Science Institute as part of a worldwide celebration, this family friendly event is free, fun for all ages, and will include telescope viewing on the UA Mall in front of Flandrau, and in the Flandrau Observatory.
Inside Flandrau we’ll have moon related hands-on activities and a public talk about the moon by planetary scientist Bill Hartmann. We’ll also have planetarium shows projected with the amazing new Flandrau FullDome system. International Observe the Moon Night is an annual event that is dedicated to encouraging people to ‘look up’ and take notice of our nearest neighbor, the Moon. From looking at the Moon with a naked eye to using the most sensitive telescope, every year on the same day, people from around the world hold events and activities to observe and appreciate the Moon.
Free parking on campus.
