Earth’s Moon, Apollo 11 & Binocular Astronomy
1100 E Street
San Rafael Ca
Michael Patrick, a member of the San Francisco Amateur Astronomers, will be giving a presentation on various aspects of Earth’s Moon – physical characteristics, influences on Earth, eclipses, etc. – and identification of the location of the Apollo 11 landing site.
In addition, he will give a demonstration of the efficient use of binoculars and, time and weather permitting, will lead the audience next door to the 5th Avenue front patio of San Rafael City Hall where we will use binoculars to observe the Moon, identify the general area of the Apollo 11 landing site, and observe several other celestial objects.
If you plan to attend and own binoculars, bring them to the presentation. If you don’t own binoculars please attend anyway as they are not necessary for the presentation.
