Observe the Moon Night
October 5, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Each year on a specific night, all the people of Earth are invited to observe and learn about the Moon together. In Greenpoint FTP welcomes the Amateur Astronomers Association who will set up telescopes on the Transmitter Pier for lunar observation.
Since 2010, this annual public outreach event sponsored by NASA and astronomical organizations encourages observation, appreciation, and understanding of our Moon. The theme for 2019 is “The Moon: Gateway to the Stars.
Learn about Earth’s only natural satellite. See the impact craters and other surface features of the Moon up close and personal through our telescopes. Feel connected to everyone on the planet who will be observing the Moon with us on this night.
