Moon stars in cameo appearance at Observe the Moon Night

        


The public joined AAS astronomers at Central Market North Lamar on Saturday night for International Observe the Moon Night.  The moon played tag with the clouds for a while before the moon was totally hidden so live views were supplemented with iPad and phone images.  Photos of the fun are courtesy of Larry Martin our Outreach Chair who organized this event.
