International Observe the Moon Night 2013 - A great success

Internation Observe the Moon Night of October 12, 2013

For the fifth consecutive year, Western's Hume Cronyn Memorial Observatory has hosted the International Observe the Moon Night.

This year it took place on Saturday, October 12.

Though clouds moved in, they couldn't spoil an almost perfect evening, approximately 200 people enjoyed the event, which had something for everyone, including moon watching, lectures by real astronomers, a panel discussion, crater making, as well as sidewalk art and much more. There were pieces of real lunar and martian meteorites which you could hold in your own hands.

Visitors could explore the three floors of the observatory at their leisure in the balmy summer-like temperatures.

Bob Duff of the London Centre of the RASC has written a more detailed INOMN 2013 Report.
