Hello Moon Night

To kick off Moon Week at Flandrau Science Center & Planetarium, at 6:30pm UA English Professor and science writer Chris Cokinos will give a fascinating presentation about how our understanding of the moon has changed through history and culture, and how science forever changed our view of the moon. Following the presentation, Tucson Amateur Astronomy Association (TAAA) will have telescopes on the UA Mall in front of Flandrau so visitors can see the moon “up close”.
