To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing and the first steps on the moon, the Bucknell University Observatory presents an evening of music, moon watching and stargazing on the Malesardi Quad in the center of Bucknell’s campus on Sunday, July 14 from 9 to 11 p.m. Observatory staff will have portable telescopes on the quad for views of the moon, Jupiter and Saturn. The free, public event will also feature music by blues guitarist Allan Combs II, as well as screening of NASA video from the Apollo missions.
Observatory staff encourages everyone to bring chairs and blankets to sit under the moon and stars and enjoy the evening.
In case of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled for Tuesday, July 16. Check the Music in the Moonlight event on the Bucknell Astronomy Public Events Facebook page for weather updates and if the event is changed to the rain date.
