Summer of the Moon Edition!

Join us for an evening of out-of-this-world astronomy activities hosted by Franklin Institute Chief Astronomer Derrick Pitts.

Build your own experience from any combination of planetarium shows, a live science talk on astronomy or space science, hands-on astronomy activities, and continuous telescopic observing all evening (weather permitting). The program is staffed with knowledgeable observers, and free star maps are provided.

This evening features episode two of the four-part documentary miniseries The Apollo Chronicles, with speaker Audra J. Wolfe, Ph.D., historian, and author featured in The Apollo Chronicles.
