Description

Gaze through a variety of telescopes at a fat 12-day old gibbous Moon and two of the delights of the early autumn sky! We will view the Moon, targeting the Copernicus crater, the Mare Imbrium (the biggest impact basin on the nearside), and the region of the Apollo 12 landing site in the Ocean of Storms. We’ll also look at the Ring Nebula and the pretty multicolored double star Albireo, the “head” of Cygnus the Swan. If clouds interfere, we’ll view high-resolution images in the planetarium. Dress warmly!
