International Observe the Moon Night

Final Update 10/21/23: Yes, we are a GO! for tonight’s lunacy at Greenway Farm! It should be a fantastic evening – hope everyone can join us!

The BAS and Outdoor Chattanooga would like to cordially invite you to join in with observers around the world for this year’s International Observe the Moon Night on October 21, 2023!

We will be kicking off at 7:00 pm Eastern for what promises to be a wonderful evening of viewing and talking about all things lunar. If you have never looked at the Moon through a telescope, prepare to have your mind *B *L *O *W *N !

We will be gathering in the large field between the Greenway Conference Center and the Outdoor Chattanooga Barn at the North Chickamauga Creek Greenway (Greenway Farm) in Hixson. Bring a picnic, a chair or blanket, and come browse the array of telescopes we will have aimed at the Moon. Of course, we might be persuaded to take a peek at Saturn, Jupiter, the Great Globular Cluster in Hercules, the Ring Nebula, the Double Cluster, etc. 😉

Please note that this event is dependent on the weather. We will post an update around 1:00 pm – please check back for the latest!
