NEW HARTFORD — Members of the public are invited to join the Mohawk Valley Astronomical Society for International Observe the Moon Night from 7:30 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, at Sherrillbrook Park, off Route 12S.

Members of the Mohawk Valley Astronomical Society will set up telescopes in the main parking lot to provide guided tours of the moon, Jupiter, Saturn, stars, and other celestial objects for visitors.

International Observe the Moon Night is a worldwide public event that encourages observation, appreciation and understanding of the moon and its connection to space science, exploration, and human culture, event organizers said, adding the annual event connects scientists, educators and lunar enthusiasts from around the world.
