“Observe the Moon, Night,” October 12
“Observe the Moon Night,” an event that will take place throughout the world on October 12, will be held locally at Up Yonda Farm in Bolton Landing from 6 to 8 pm.
Sponsored by the Lake George Land Conservancy, “Observe the Moon Night” will be led by Professor Rosemary Millham. Millham is currently the science coordinator for the secondary science education program and assistant professor at SUNY New Paltz, and works part-time for NASA GSFC in science writing and curriculum development.
Participants will meet at Up Yonda Farm Environmental Education Center, 5239 Lake Shore Drive (Rt. 9N), for an indoor lunar presentation and explanation of the project, from 6 to 7 pm. The group will then go outdoors to view the moon. Dr. Millham will lead the group in lunar observations and conduct activities from 7:30 to 8. Participants are then invited to return indoors for light refreshments.
