We’re bringing the moon to you this year for International Observe the Moon Night! Museum educator Dr. Misty will show live views of the moon through her telescope and explain different lunar features. Download the guide to follow along: https://moon.nasa.gov/system/downloadable_items/495_INOMN_Moon_Maps_2020_Northern_Hemisphere.pdf
If the sky is cloudy, a live computer tour of the night sky will be presented, so the next time the stars are out, you can find the planets and constellations from your house.
This will be the final event for the 2020 NM Science Fiesta: https://www.explora.us/events/nm-science-fiesta-expo
