International Observe the Moon Night - Saturday October 12

Original post made by wbp, Midtown, on Oct 10, 2013

On Saturday evening October 12, the Foothill College Observatory and the Peninsula Astronomical Society will hold an evening "star party" as part of the International Observe the Moon Night. The observatory will be open free to the public, from 7 to 10 pm, with additional telescopes set up near the entrance and in the nearby parking lot. We'll have great views of the Moon! Everyone is welcome, and families are encouraged to bring kids of all ages. Please park in Parking Lot 4 and walk to the observatory, which is right next to Lot 4 and next to the Krause Center. Note that parking costs $3.

Yes, it's one day past 1st quarter moon. the date was chosen so there would be good shadows, as this enhances the detail one can see. There's more info, including a map to the observatory, on our web site: Web Link
