Saturday, March 9 at 7 p.m.

This exciting family-oriented program will include an indoor formal presentation followed by an outdoor viewing using the Library's telescopes. We'll look for celestial objects such as the rings of Saturn, craters on the Moon, weather permitting. This date was chosen because the Moon will not be in a first quarter phase, which is a good time for viewing its craters because the terminator (line separating sunlight from shadow) is the area of highest contrast and the craters showing up are in abundance.

Presented by Astrophysicist Kevin Manning, a former consultant with NASA.

Hot chocolate and cookies will be served.

Additional parking for evening and weekend Library programs on Thorndal Circle (behing Nielsen's).
