See traveling NASA exhibit at Canton Branch Library

By Haywood County Public Library, Canton Branch | Nov 06, 2013

During the month of November, the Canton branch of the Haywood County Public Library is hosting a traveling exhibit from NASA's Lunar Science Institute.

"The Moon: Cosmic Decoder Ring" is an exhibit that features 3D images of the moon's surface. Scientists have discovered that the moon's craters are a decoding tool that allows them to better understand the planets in our solar system.

"The Moon: Cosmic Decoder Ring" includes 3D glasses for the public to use in order to decode images in the exhibit. Viewers can use the 3D glasses to examine images of craters formed by both volcanoes and asteroid impacts.

A handout is also provided that lists websites and book titles for further moon exploration. For more information, call the Canton Branch Library at (828) 648-2924.
