Moon and Star Party at Cloudland Canyon State Park. At the Tennis Courts, the program will begin at 7 PM. The focus of tonight’s discussion will be our nearest celestial neighbor, our very own Moon. We will discuss the formation of the moon, it’s atmosphere, how it affects tides on earth, earthshine, eclipses and much, much more. As the sky darkens you will see the Moon through several telescopes as you have never seen it before, manned by the Barnard Astronomical Society. In further darkening skies we will learn the constellations of late Winter and Spring. The planet Jupiter will also be visible, and it is awesome as seen through our telescopes. As always there will be several members of the Barnard Astronomical Society who will answer your many questions about all things Astronomical.
