Add to Calendar 2022-06-28 18:30:00 2022-06-28 19:30:00 America/New_York Oceans on the Moon?! What Science Says About Our Companion Sharon Forks Library -

A fun and scientific look at our amazing Moon - oceans of lava, hidden water ice, and all the possibilities of lunar exploration! Astronomer Brooke Skelton will discuss ways that the Moon is a fascinating satellite, how it affects the Earth, and what the frontiers of lunar investigation tell us about our constant companion.

We will also have the opportunity to examine different types of lunar rocks - brought back from the Apollo missions - through a microscope, such as solidified lava from the lunar "seas," feldspar crystals from the lunar highlands, meteorite rocks, and different types of soil!
