Event Name:  Public Observation and Movie Night: The Moon
Event Description:  Tartu Observatory in Tõravere welcomes everyone to take part in a Public Observation and Movie Night. At 6 PM we will watch the Moon Machines episodes in the main building of Tartu Observatori (Observatooriumi 1, Tõravere). After each episode, we will have a discussion with the Tartu Observatory engineers. Moon Machines in the United States and United Kingdom is a Science Channel HD documentary miniseries documenting the engineering challenges of the Apollo program to land men on the Moon. From 7 PM we will start observing the Moon with a 1.5 m telescope (in case of cloudy weather: seeing and getting to know the telescope). This night we will concentrate on observing the Moon also with a smaller telescope. The scientists from University of Tartu are there to discuss what you can see. The permanent exhibition in the Stellarium (that is also located in the big telescope tower) is open for the public.
