Twinkle Twinkle Three Quarter Moon, June 2nd Will Be Here Soon!

June 2 is an evening Lunar Viewing. Come out and view the night sky and all that is in it. APSU is providing professional academic telescopes for you to come view the Third Quarter Moon and night sky & discuss the Total Solar Eclipse. It’s free and fun.

The Moon is Earth’s largest natural satellite and the nearest major celestial object. Observing the Moon can be accomplished by using a variety of instruments ranging from the naked eye to large telescopes.  Austin Peay State University Astronomy and Physics Department is coming Friday, June 2 for an evening Lunar Viewing. Bringing professional academic telescopes for you to come view the Third Quarter Moon and discuss the Total Solar Eclipse.  It’s free and fun.  APSU students will help you observe and learn about the moon, the planets, stars and other objects that roam the night sky. This fun and educational opportunity is completely safe and gives you an opportunity to actually “look” into outer space. Bring the kids! Along with night sky viewing, Mangia Italian Food Truck will be at the distillery to feed you thru the afternoon and night!

A discussion will be led by APSU on the eclipse. Learn what an eclipse is, the historical and scientific importance of eclipses, why Hopkinsville is the best place on Earth for the 2017 Solar Eclipse, the experience of totality, and how to safely view an eclipse. Learn about the APSU ballooning project and the commemorative Casey’s Cut Total Eclipse Moonshine.

And we are all so excited that on August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will cross the continental United States – truly an historic event and a wonderful opportunity to view one of nature’s most stunning displays. The point of greatest eclipse for August 21, 2017 is defined as the point where the sun, moon, and Earth line up most perfectly, near Hopkinsville, KY.
