International Observe the Moon Night

*Unfortunately, this event will be postponed until further notice due to some scheduling conflicts.  Please check back for a rescheduled date.

We are in the process of planning a family event to participate in the “International Observe the Moon Night.”  InOMN is a world-wide celebration of our nearest neighbor, the Moon!  Each autumn, millions of people from hundreds of locations in countries across the globe come together to view the Moon and learn about its diverse roles in culture, history, science and exploration.  We have invited Vernon Whetstone to help us with this event.  He will be providing two telescopes and a wealth of knowledge.  The library was awarded a Moon viewing kit from the InOMN Team that includes binoculars and a tripod for viewing the night sky.  We hope that anyone owning telescopes, night vision spotting scopes, etc. would bring them to share and assist with the viewing.

Where:  Grassy area west of the Lied Imperial Public Library and the library meeting room.

When:  4:00 pm, Saturday, October 8th  (Moon rise is approx. 4:30pm)

What you need to bring:

  • Folding chairs, blankets
  • Snacks or a picnic for you and your family
  • Drinking water
  • Flashlights
  •  Binoculars, tripods, telescopes, cameras
  • Friends
