Austin Peay cancels public viewing of lunar occultation of Mars due to weather

(Posted on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2022)

Because of cloudy conditions Wednesday night, Austin Peay State University’s Department of Physics, Engineering and Astronomy has canceled the public observation of the lunar occultation of Mars scheduled for tonight, Dec. 7.

But because so many people signed up for this free event, the department is making plans to have monthly community observing nights starting in January. Anybody who’s interested should be on the lookout for an announcement about these new events next month.
