The secrets of the Moon revealed

We all see it. We all know it. We all take it for granted, other than as a pleasant, romantic, reflective backdrop. But…what is it? How did it come into being?

More focus is on it now because we humans finally interacted with it, physically, some 50 years ago.

The Moon.

Southern Vermont  Astronomy Group members Rick Bates and Claudio Veliz will provide a Brief History of the Moon, describing the current theories about how the moon came to be, how much bigger it looked shortly after its formation, as well as some very fun bits about its history in our culture and some of our notions about how we interact with it! Graphic, and humor heavy; this presentation is open to all.

SoVerA is an organization composed of amateur and professional astronomers, educators, students, and lots of members of the lay public. SoVerA is dedicated to making astronomy much more accessible to all. Talks and presentations are free and open to the public.  This venue is ADA accessible.
