Montauk Observatory Lecture: “The Lure of the Moon and the Legacy of Apollo” at SoFo
April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
REGISTRATION: Call SoFo at 631-537-9735
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.
