The public is invited to attend a special Halloween evening of observing the night sky hosted by the Salt Lake Astronomical Society. This weekend, as darkness falls, it’ll be hard to miss the bright star-like object close to the waxing crescent moon. That “star” is actually Mars, the fourth planet from the sun.
We will also be promoting Paramount Pictures’ new film, INTERSTELLAR, a film by Christopher Nolan and starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn and Michael Caine. We will be giving away T-shirts, posters, fleece blankets, and raffling off theater passes.
Bring your telescopes and set up with us, or just view the wonders of the night sky from the telescopes owned by the Salt Lake Astronomical Society. Our events are always free, family-friendly and weather permitting. Wear costumes and bring your Halloween bags for candy and treats.
