The Chinese lunar rover, “Jade Rabbit,” has been hopping around on the moon since New Year’s, and its landing site is near one of the most beautiful spots on the entire moon. We'll take a look at the area with a telescope. We'll also look for the rover's namesake lunar formation, visible to the naked eye. Our session will start with a talk and slide show about the Moon, both Jade Rabbits and the planet Jupiter. Hosted by Val Germann and co-sponsored by the Central Missouri Astronomical Association. Families, recommended for ages 6 and older.
The beautiful first quarter moon and the giant planet Jupiter will highlight the sky this evening, if the weather is clear. The moon will be high overhead in perfect viewing position, and we’ll have a high-power telescope on hand to see its giant craters and earthquake faults, along with Jupiter and its four bright moons. The evening will begin inside with a short talk and slide show, featuring recent spacecraft views of both the moon and Jupiter. Hosted by Val Germann and co-sponsored by the Central Missouri Astronomical Association. Families, recommended for ages 6 and older.
