Super Stellar Friday: The New Moon

Doors open at 6:30 PM. At 7:00 PM we'll begin our lecture, The New Moon. Dr. Andrew Jordan (Research Scientist at the Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space at UNH) is part of the team operating NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO. He will explain how LRO has transformed our view of the Moon and how UNH's instrument on LRO--the Cosmic Ray Telescope for the Effects of Radiation (CRaTER)--has revealed how the Moon interacts with its environment.

At 8:00 PM in the Planetarium, join us for a Tonight's Sky showing. Learn about the constellations, planets, and more visible in the night sky in addition to the spectacular super blue moon that happened on January 31.

Doors close at 9:30 PM.

The all-inclusive price for Super Stellar Friday at the Discovery Center is $11.50 for adults, $10.50 for students and seniors, $8.50 for children 12 and under, and free for members. Pending clear skies, our observatory will be open and members of the NH Astronomical Society will be outside the Discovery Center with telescopes pointed to the sky, ready to share their knowledge and views from their telescopes for free.
