NASA and other global government agencies set Saturday as International Observe the Moon Night and there are options in Door County to celebrate. The Door Peninsula Astronomical Society is gathering on Utah Street in Sturgeon Bay. President Dave Lenius runs down the different activities.
The Astronomical Society has telescopes and more at its disposal, but the moon is one of the few objects in the sky that can be observed with a simple pair of binoculars or even the naked eye. All that's needed to make International Observe the Moon Night a success is a clear sky. If you miss it, don't worry, the full moon doesn't come around until next week.
