Moon and stargazing at ONU Observatory Friday

The Ohio Northern University Observatory will be open to the public for a moon and star-gazing event on Friday, March 6, 8-10 p.m.

The event is called "Moon in the Beehive" because “the moon will be passing through the 'Beehive cluster' in Cancer this evening.  We'll take on the challenge of seeing the stars, despite the bright moon being nearby,” said Dr. Jason Pinkney, professor of physics and astronomy at ONU.

Please note, you can arrive anytime during the scheduled event; there is usually no advantage to being early. If there is a presentation, this will occur in the middle of the event.
