Telescope and Moon Rock Viewing
Oct. 21, 2010

John Gianforte will be setting up telescopes for viewing the evening sky, weather permitting. Bring your telescope too! (To limit light pollution, bring a flashlight with red cellophane over the bulb.)

Blast off on Thursday, October 21st!
Arrive anytime between 7 pm to 8:30 pm
At Rye Jr. High School.

Telescope viewing on playground.
Moon Rocks on display in the library.

Come view rocks from the Moon and learn more about our natural satellite. Six small samples of Moon rocks and “soil” have been sent to our school from NASA. We invite you and your family to view the rocks and experience different activities about the Moon.

These samples originated from the Moon and are loan to RJH for a short period of time. You will not be able to actually touch the rocks as they are encased in a clear plastic disk, but you will be able to view. We will also use the projecting microscope for a closer look.
