October 5 is International Observe Moon Night. Join us for telescope observing on the lawn, and special FREE showings of “Imagine the Moon” at 6:30, 7:10, 7:50, and 8:30 pm.
The Moon has inspired human creativity, learning, and exploration ever since we have looked to the sky.
Each discovery has brought new opportunities to contemplate and imagine, until, driven by dreams, we left Earth and went there in the amazing journeys that culminated in astronauts walking on the Moon. People have imagined the Moon as a glowing disk in the sky, a destination in space, and a world that shares its origin with the Earth. The power of human imagination continues to inspire our relationship with the Moon as our partner in space and companion in our sky.
Imagine the Moon runs about 30 minutes and is suitable for general audiences.
