About the Event:
Scenic Rim Astronomy Association Inc. & Star Gayzers Inc. are teaming up to present this years International Observe the Moon Night on 26th September 2020.
This year we’re holding International Observe the Moon night at our Laravale campus. There will be no general public admission due to COVID-19 Restrictions.
International Observe the Moon Night is a worldwide celebration of lunar science and exploration held annually since 2010. One day each year, everyone on Earth is invited to observe and learn about the Moon together, and to celebrate the cultural and personal connections we all have with our nearest neighbour.
The event occurs in September, when the Moon is around First Quarter. A First Quarter Moon is visible in the afternoon and evening, a convenient time for most hosts and participants. Furthermore, the best lunar observing is typically along the dusk/dawn terminator, where shadows are the longest, rather than at Full Moon.
Registrations for this event are closed.
