Are you sitting around, bored, wondering what to do? Have you checked with your local university? Here in Minneapolis at the University of Minnesota’s Institute for Astrophysics they have a public viewing night.

Friday nights, starting September 13, from 8:00-9:30 pm you get a short presentation (When I went they discussed citizen science opportunities) and then up to the dome and a view of the stars (It was the first time I’d ever seen the moon up close).

Topic schedule is here.

Definitely a family friendly (and/or first date) outing.

the lovely image of the moon comes from stem.nasa.gov
