CHANGE IN DATE FOR INTERNATIONAL OBSERVE THE MOON NIGHT - NOW SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7th AT 7 PM!
NKAF and the Peacham Library are co-sponsoring our own local version of "International Observe the Moon Night" on FRIDAY, October 7th, starting at 7 PM - the weather maps tell us that Saturday looks rainy and Friday clear! We'll have telescopes and binoculars and refreshments. Please check here for late breaking weather news. Friday looks great right now, but this is New England, so keep posted!
The official website for IOMN is http://observethemoonnight.org/, which includes an "Activities" link which you might find interesting.
There are many moon maps available online, but here is a link to one of our favorites: http://bit.ly/MapoftheMoon
In addition, go to www.skymaps.com and download their September and October sky maps! Each includes information on interesting objects to observe - well worth the effort for your own observing!
We hope to see you on October 7th. Again, check these pages and our Facebook page for late-breaking weather news!
