Evening of Astronomy: Moons

Friday, August 16, 2019, 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Are the moons of the Solar System more interesting than the planets? In this one hour long program, take an in depth look at a few of the almost 200 moons that orbit the major planets. From volcanic moons to moons with lakes and rivers, explore the Solar System as you never have before. Be prepared to ride imaginary roller coasters on more than one of these fantastic mini-worlds.

Admission to this after-hours educational program is free to the public, but donations to support astronomy education at the Museum can be made at the door. Live observing will continue throughout the evening in the Apollo Observatory (weather permitting).
