The moon shines brightly in our night sky, but what does it look like up close? Dr. Brooke Skelton, Professor of Physics and Astronomy with Georgia State University, will talk to us about humankind's adventures to our nearest celestial neighbor and bring along samples of moon rocks on loan from NASA so you can get a good, close-up look at the moon!

About Dr. Skelton: Dr. Skelton received her BA in Physics from Rice University in 1993 and her PhD in Astronomy from University of Washington in 1999.  She started teaching at Georgia Perimeter College, now a part of Georgia State University, in 2000.  Brooke coordinated a $1 Million National Science Foundation STEM scholarship program at Dunwoody Campus of GSU 2016-2021. She lives in Powder Springs and has two college kids, an attorney husband, and an orange cat. Brooke has wanted to be an astronomer since 9th grade.  She loves "seeing" history and has gotten to see the Apollo 6, 8, 11, 14, 15, 16, and 17 capsules at various museums across the country.  She rejuvenates by being outdoors and hiking.
