Supermoon Over Mohonk Events:

Sunday, November 13

3:00 p.m.  The Moon
Astronomer Bob Berman shares the lore, legend, science, and little-known motions of our nearest neighbor in space. By the conclusion of this presentation, you'll be your neighborhood authority on predicting where the Moon will be the next night, what the crescent Moon's "horns" reveal, how it affects us, the newly-discovered super-violence of its birth, and much more.

9:00 p.m.  Supermoon over Mohonk
It's the closest, largest full moon in almost half a century. With the media in full frenzy about "Supermoons" the past few years, this will be the supermoon that tops them all. What will it look like? How will it affect us? Will we all be acting, well, oddly? To find out, astronomer Bob Berman will lead this special event at Mohonk Mountain House with indoor images and outdoor "hands-on" explorations of this biggest moon of all. We'll supply everything, but if you own binoculars, bring them along. And don't forget your coat!

See you there!
