Moon

Check Out the Moon...

The Moon

Because it will be full tonight, Thursday, June 12!  So take a moment to go outside and look for it in the southeastern sky.  Last night’s moon was high in the sky at dusk, and it had an almost delicate appearance, like fine glass.  What sort of beauty will our moon give us tonight?

As part of our Adult Summer Reading Program at Baldwin Boettcher, we will display books about the moon all summer long.  Science and astronomy, space exploration and the astronauts, folklore, photography, and maybe even a favorite book from your childhood – all will be on hand and available for check-out through August 9.

Here are a few:

Delores "Moon" Smith Exhibiting in Room L129

This month we have the pleasure of exhibiting the oil and water-soluble oil paintings of Delores "Moon" Smith. Delores is a local painter, who grew up painting and drawing portraits, landscapes, and more. She's a member of the Tomball Art League and she gives private and semi-private lessons. What you see here is a self-portrait.

Apollo 11 Anniversary

This week marks the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. Were you watching it live as the images were beamed back to Earth on July 20, 1969? Maybe you have never seen the original broadcast.  If you would like to see it again, or for the first time, you can now view NASA’s restored clips of the transmission online.  

If you're curious to know more about the Apollo 11 mission, check out these titles from the HCPL catalog:
