Live (online) Telescopic Tour of the Moon
Friday 23 October
7:00 p.m. (ADT) by Zoom (details below)
September 26th was NASA’s International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN)! We missed it here owing to bad weather, so we postponed it to October:
Halifax Centre is hosting an event where a telescope will be pointed at the Moon by one of two of our telescope operators (Jerry Black and Blair MacDonald) with our lunar tour guide (Dave Chapman) and his assistant (Judy Black) providing descriptions, history and other facts about what we're viewing. Viewers will see the lunar mountains and craters along the line between light and dark, and they might also get a glimpse of what's usually hidden on the Moon's far side due to its slight wobble in its orbit around the Earth.
Come join our Zoom session! We will notify registrants that if clouds interfere with the view of our nearest celestial neighbour, we will postpone to another evening.
