A member of the Amateur Observers' Society focuses

A member of the Amateur Observers' Society focuses on the Moon through a telescope while a young visitor views with binoculars during this worldwide event for everyone to share the lunar view. The East Meadow Library hosted this event on Sept 22 and 23 while members of the club provided equipment and guidance for the public. On Sat, we were treated to a special event-the appearance of the Lunar X, only visible for a few hours a month under the right circumstances.
