Visit our Awesome Astronomy page to watch the newest video!
This week, look for a young, ultra-thin crescent moon in the evening sky. Do you know what’s so special about this particular crescent moon? Tune in to find out! Recommended for ages 8+.
Then, join Marc Taylor, Planetarium and Science Program Manager, in an accompanying Facebook Live astronomy event on Friday, April 24 at 4pm, and bring your observations and questions. For example:
- Can you ever see the night-time side of the Moon?
- Is the night-time side the same as the far side?
- What is a “Supermoon,” anyway?
