The Manila Street Astronomers conducted a public lecture event last July 17 at the National Museum Planetarium. The lecture was entitled The Moon and How to Observe It and was given by MSA core team members Christopher Louie Lu and Norman Marigza.

During the lecture
The MSA event was originally designed for the cast and crew (volunteers); but as the advocacy of MSA goes, we aim to make astronomy accessible to the public. Our original estimate was for 20 individuals, which later became 50 the day before the event. We were setup at the NMP Library which soon became a full-house during the opening remarks by MSA core member Gary Andreassen. Fortunately, NMP curator Bel Pabunan was flexible enough to accomodate us in the planetarium's exhibit area. The event was attended by more than 100 individuals both from the local astronomy community and the general public.
