365 Days of the Moon
The Moon is enjoying a revival in scientific interest. Once regarded as the target of the Cold War "Space Race" between the USA and former USSR, the Moon is now a scientific destination for many nations of the world. The 21st century thrust to explore our natural satellite will again bring the Moon to the attention of both the public and the amateur astronomy community. To the novice viewer, the Moon appears as a cratered wasteland. But the Moon is filled with exciting geologic diversity and telescopic views tell us much about how the face of the Moon evolved. In his presentation, Robert Reeves will explain the geology of the Moon as seen through a modest amateur telescope and show how the various types of lunar features combine to create the face of the Moon we see today.

About the Speaker – Robert Reeves
Robert Reeves has been exploring the Moon since 1958 and took his first lunar photograph in 1959. His Facebook project "365 Days of the Moon" has re-popularized the Moon within the amateur astronomy community with over 40,000 daily readership. Robert is also an accomplished deep sky astrophotographer and had published over 250 magazine articles and 175 newspaper columns about astronomy since 1984. His experiences with digital lunar photography has inspired him to write his fifth book, "Exploring the Moon with Robert Reeves", to be published early in 2019. Robert enjoys speaking to astronomy conventions and spreading his passion for the Moon. Asteroid 26591 Robertreeves is named in his honor and he observes from his Perspective Observatory located in central Texas.
