FULL DESCRIPTION:

The Moon is the closest world to the Earth and the most distant place 
humans have ever set foot on. Its existence has shaped life on our 
planet, and its beauty and mystery have inspired cultures for millennia. 
Fifty years ago, the first voyagers set out across the vast expanse of 
space to bring us all one small step forward in understanding our 
universe. In this illustrated lecture, NASA Solar System Ambassador and 
Montauk Observatory Educator, William Francis Taylor, will answer such 
questions as: What did the Apollo astronauts learn; what have we learned 
since; and what mysteries remain for the next generation of explorers? 
At the end of the discussion, everyone will have an opportunity (weather 
permitting) to see the beauty of the Moon for themselves with telescopes 
operated by Montauk Observatory astronomers. Suitable for adults and 
children 10 years and older.
