Join your fellow Earthlings keeping an eye on our nearest neighbor during NASA’s International Observe the Moon Night on Saturday, October 28th!
From 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., activities will be available for your drop-in enjoyment at both Observatory Park at 10610 Clay Street and its newly restored Nassau Astronomical Station at 10350 Clay Street, both in Montville Township.
“The moon will be just past its first quarter phase,” said Astronomy Naturalist “Astro-Nat” Chris Mentrek, “which means it will be shining away right at sunset, making for some great moon-viewing for younger astronomers!”
Registration is not required for any of the evening’s free family fun:
- Take a “Moon Hike” along the Nassau Connector Trail to learn about its appearances in folklore, poetry and culture throughout history.
- Learn about cutting-edge lunar science conducted by the latest generation of moon-exploring space probes.
- Try some fun moon-related indoor activities in the Robert McCullough Science Center.
- If weather permits, view the moon using Observatory Park telescopes, plus use the huge 36”-mirrored Cassegrain telescope housed within the newly restored facility!
International Observe the Moon Night is an annual celebration of the connection between the Earth and its moon. Learn more Observe the Moon Night.
