The moon points the way

Listen 00:04:53

The Moon slides past Mars and Saturn this week – Mars on Wednesday and Saturn on Friday . . . If you can see the moon you can find the planets below.

Night skies at the Franklin Institute Observatory this week, Derrick will shed some light on the vast array of moons found in our solar system. From the two small moons at Mars to the amazing 67 moons of Jupiter. We’ll even see some moons through our rooftop telescopes as well.
