Once In A Blue Moon Halloween Virtual Telescope Viewing

October 31, 2020 @ 9:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Saturday, October 31
9-10:30 p.m.
Free on Facebook Live

Join us for a special, spooky virtual telescope viewing on Halloween night!

This Halloween, we are celebrating a sight that only comes around once in a Blue Moon. The last time we had a Full Moon on Halloween was in 2001, and this year is extra special with a rare Blue Moon. This will be the first Blue Moon on Halloween since 1944. Celebrate this special night with Chabot’s astronomers for a very rare virtual telescope viewing.

Together, we will observe and learn about the Blue Moon with a presentation and a virtual look through Chabot’s most powerful telescope, Nellie. Weather permitting, we will see the Moon, Mars and more deep sky objects.


How to Watch

We will go live the Chabot Space & Science Center Facebook page 10-15 minutes before the event. You can find the live video stream on our Facebook page and in the Facebook event discussion. To receive a notification when we go live, “like” Chabot Space & Science Center on Facebook and RSVP that you’re going to this event.
