"Moon Over Melrose" at Shake Rag Art and Culture Center.

The Alachua Astronomy Club’s Lunar Observing Group (LOG) will hold a public lunar observing session. The evening begins with a short PowerPoint presentation outside near telescopes titled “Strange Lights on the Moon.” This will be followed by a few hours of lunar observing with volunteer AAC club-members training their telescopes on the craters Aristarchus, Plato and Gassendi. 

Come join us and get to know your nearest celestial neighbor a little better while supporting the local art community with all proceeds benefiting the Shake Rag Art and Culture Center.
