Observe the Moon Night

  • Highland Road Park 14024 Highland Road Baton Rouge, LA, 70810 United States (map)

Observe the Moon Night Oct. 8, 7-10 pm Free and for all ages Drinks. Refreshments. Binoculars recommended. Our nearest celestial neighbor and constant companion has been visited by twelve human beings on six different occasions—and we’re going back! There’s nothing, however, to stop us from doing the next best thing right now. During this night of lunar excitement telescopes around the world will be pointed at our sole natural satellite. HRPO will showcase the best historical lunar imagery, fascinating displays describing fact-finding missions, Apollo landings, myths and little-known facts about the Moon. Telescope viewing will occur as usual, with the Moon taking precedence. Join us, and sketch the Moon while you’re here!
