International Observe the Moon Night Sept 6



For the fifth year in a row, visitors around the globe are invited to get close-up views of our nearest celestial neighbor.  This year’s International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN), on Saturday, September 6th, will offer curious moon-gazers the opportunity to see the moon’s mountains, craters, and volcanic plains through telescopes at over 300 participating observatories and science centers world-wide.


CSI’s Centennial Observatory at the Herrett Center for Arts & Science will be open from 8:30 to 10:30 PM, offering views through the fully wheelchair-accessible 24” Norman Herrett Telescope, as well as smaller telescopes at a variety of magnifications.  Admission is free.


Weather forecasts are calling for clear skies with lows in the 50s Saturday night, so visitors are encouraged to dress warmly, as the observatory dome is not heated to preserve the best viewing conditions.
