Learn about the moon at event


The “International Observe the Moon Night,” Sept. 19, is an annual worldwide public event that encourages observation, appreciation and understanding of the moon and its connection to NASA planetary science and exploration.

This year it will be part of the Chamber of Commerce’s Harvest Festival planned for North Dam Park and Banks Lake Park, this weekend.

There will be two opportunities for the public to take part: from noon to 2 p.m. and from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., on Saturday both at North Dam Park. During the day there will be an observance of the sun, and in the evening the same for the moon.

The event will be handled by Janice Elvidge, education specialist for the Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area.
