    Join us Saturday evening, October 8, 2016 from 8 to 10 p.m. for International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN)!

    Admission is FREE for all to look through telescopes provided by Cernan Center staff and members of the Chicago Astronomical Society and Northwest Suburban Astronomers.

    In addition to the Moon, Saturn will also be a featured telescope target.

    InOMN is an annual worldwide public event that encourages observation, appreciation, and understanding of our Moon and its connection to NASA planetary science and exploration. Everyone on Earth is invited to join the celebration by attending an InOMN event — to look at and learn about the Moon together.
