Astronomy fun for the whole family! Educators from the Dudley Observatory, in conjunction with volunteers from the Albany Area Amateur Astronomers group, present astronomy lessons, planetarium shows and night sky viewing.

Tonight's lesson: Our Friend the Moon

 

Even though humans haven’t set foot on the moon in over 40 years, NASA and other space agencies have been actively studying the moon using satellites and robotic landers. Come learn about some of the latest discoveries, then join us at miSci on October 28th to celebrate International Observe the Moon Night!
