CHAOS explains the Supermoon

On Monday, Nov. 14, something happened that has not happened for a very long time. The moon came the closest to earth that it has been since 1948. When this closeness correlates with a full moon you get a "Supermoon"

CHAOS, which stands for Cooper Hall's Ambassadors of Science, saw a need to help educate the public about the lunar event. So on Nov. 14, CHAOS put on a show.

The schedule for the night was a lecture by Dr. David Hurd on how the lunar cycle works, a guided tour of Cooper Hall's science museum just outside the planetarium, and finally a planetarium show. The crowd came out so strong that they had to break up the crowd into different groups and even then they had to turn people away. 

This was all a part of CHAOS's show schedule. The next show, called Stars of Wonder, will be at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 13. You can reserve a spot online by going to https://www.edinboro.edu/directory/offices-services/planetarium/planetar....
