You are invited to join Bandelier Astronomy Rangers at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, in the Juniper Campground Amphitheater to be a part of International Observe the Moon Night.
This worldwide celebration of lunar science and exploration is held annually as a night, when everyone on earth is encouraged to observe and learn about the moon and celebrate the cultural and personal connections we have with the moon. Each year, thousands of people participate at museums, planetariums, schools, universities, observatories, parks, businesses and backyards around the world. Anyone can participate; all you need to do is look up!
Saturday’s event at Bandelier will begin with a short presentation about observing the moon through history, then looking at select lunar sites through telescopes.
No reservations needed, however please dress warmly and bring your flashlights, enthusiasm and questions.
