On the evening of Saturday, November 4th the Horizons Observatory will partner with the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park to offer a free night sky event. Starting at 5:30 pm in the Park’s Visitor’s Center, Rob Hanson (co-director of The Horizons Observatory) will present a simulation both describing and explaining the phases of our moon, a pattern which has occurred for more than four billion years. After the presentation, we’ll step outside to witness the full moon rising over the fields of Billings Farm (weather permitting). A telescope and astronomical binoculars will be available for viewing. Please note, the moon phase presentation will occur regardless of the weather.
Dress appropriately for an autumn evening outside. We're looking forward to seeing you and your friends for a night beneath November’s “Full Beaver Moon”!
