DARK NIGHTS, BRIGHT LIGHTS: Skygazing at The Moon & Saturn!

Wednesday, October 7, 2015: 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The Moon and Saturn are two gems of the night sky. Chances are, you’ve seen the Moon in the night sky. And you may never have realized it, but you’ve probably seen Saturn several times too, disguising itself as a star to our naked eyes. Come learn more about these celestial bodies – how they formed, what they’re made of, and…does Saturn float? Jaclyn Avidon is the Chair of the Education Committee of the Amateur Astronomers Association of New York.
