Saturday is International Observe the Moon night, and also Astronomy Day
or both. For us, it's just our regular Saturday night closest to the
first quarter moon -- the Saturday each month we bring the moon and
planets (weather permitting) to the sidewalk. There are some other
events Saturday the 8th in the bandshell on the other side of Monrovia
Park, so come on down and enjoy the various afternoon and evening events
by walking around the park! The big Library Park would make a great
scale model of the solar system, with the sun at the fountain, wouldn't
it? So come out and join us!
