‘Earthshine’ event planned for this month

March 9th, 6:30PM

An astronomy event to observe “earthshine” on the surface of the moon will be offered by the Klamath County Museum at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, March 9.

The free event will be held in the parking lot of Foothills Christian Fellowship, at the north end of Patterson Street.

Amateur astronomers will be on hand with portable telescopes to point out other features of the winter night sky, such as the Orion nebula.

“Earthshine is a fascinating phenomena that is easy to observe, but which many people are unaware of,” said museum manager Todd Kepple. “The weather forecast looks pretty marginal for this weekend, but we’ll hope for the best.”
