Moon Landing 50th Anniversary ‘Moonwatch’
July 20 @ 9:00 pm - July 21 @ 1:00 am
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing on July 20th the Galway Astronomy Club will be hosting a special ‘moonwatch’ on the night. This event will be open to the general public and will be taking place at Toft Park in Salthill. Members of the club will be on hand to show where exactly on the moon Neil Armstrong took that famous first step!
While the moon will not rise until after 11:30pm that evening the club telescopes will be trained on Jupiter, Saturn and other celestial objects earlier that night.
This event will be free and of course weather dependent.
