On Friday, May 21 at 7 p.m., The Nature Museum and Southern Vermont Astronomy will feature an indoor 45-minute talk by the SoVerA Research Group's Rick Hunter on the relationship between the Sun, Earth, and Moon.
Hunter will touch on events such as the Moon's phases, its seasons, tides, and eclipses, as well as a few flights of fancy into the distant past and future.
The presentation will be followed by an outdoor star party if the sky is clear enough. Local amateur astronomers will share their telescopes to help participants look deep into space. The program is free to Museum and SoVerA members; nonmember adults $10, children 18 and under $5, family maximum $25. Pre-registration is requested by calling the Museum at 843-2111.
Participants should meet at Grafton Ponds, at 783 Townshend Road in Grafton.
