Program Description

See the full moon rise over Kitt Peak!   AN OUT OF THIS WORLD EXPERIENCE!

In this program we will learn all about our moon and what effects it has had on the planet and on the life that lives here.  

We will also cover other moons in our solar system and the many varieties of environments that exist in our own small system of planets! 

Learn what makes a moon and how life on Earth might have never evolved if not for our wonderful moon!

At the end of the evening everyone will get a chance to image the moon through the McMath-Pierce Solar Telescope using an CCD imager.  We will be emailing these images to each participant after the program concludes.

Dinner is included with the program and is served at 4:30pm.  The program itself begins just before sunset and ends 3 hours
after sunset.

COST: $95 per person/ Members $90

Cancellations within 24 hours of the scheduled program will result in a charge of $45 per person.
