Our Second Annual "Observe the Moon" Gathering!

Join us on Saturday, October 1, 2022
7:00 to 10pm
LOCATION CHANGE to beautiful and spacious Cauble Park on Beach Street, Acworth, GA
Donations & RSVP Requested, but not necessary

Grab a friend, a blanket, then come on out to grab a cookie and get a glimpse of the moon through lovely telescopes provided by NASA Community Ambassador Stephen Rahn. We plan on a fire in the grill for hand-warming and for s'mores, moon handouts, moon music, moon tarot readings, lunar rover coloring pages, participation certificates, a photo learning board, and general hanging out under the moonlight with friends.

Bring a chair or mat, blanket, perhaps binoculars, and a moon poem, if you wish! Or just wander around and enjoy the park and the lakeshore. This is our second year observing the moon with the whole world. Be a part of it! 

From the NASA site:
International Observe the Moon Night is a time to come together with fellow Moon enthusiasts and curious people worldwide. Everyone on Earth is invited to learn about lunar science and exploration, take part in celestial observations, and honor cultural and personal connections to the Moon. 

International Observe the Moon Night occurs annually in September or October, when the Moon is around first quarter ― a great phase for evening observing. Furthermore, a first-quarter Moon offers excellent viewing opportunities along the terminator (the line between night and day), where shadows enhance the Moon’s cratered landscape.
