All ages welcome. Join us as we gaze upon the night sky and learn about the fun hobby of amateur astronomy. Enjoy amazing views of the Moon and other celestial objects with high-quality telescopes operated by members of Richmond Astronomical Society. See craters and seas on the surface of the Moon with wonderful clarity and detail. A brief presentation on astronomy starts at 6:15 PM, followed by viewing through telescopes starting at about 6:45 PM.
In case of cloudy weather, our “rain date” will be Tuesday, October 24 from 6:15 to 8:15 PM.
This program is offered as part of the NASA@ My Library initiative to engage public audiences nationwide in informal and lifelong learning with the excitement of NASA exploration and discovery.
