COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - If you want to join folks around the globe gazing at the moon, the South Carolina State Museum in Columbia is inviting heaven watchers to a special event at their new observatory.

Museum spokeswoman Anna Kate Twitty says Saturday’s event coincides with the International Observe the Moon Night. It is being held from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. in cooperation with the Midlands Astronomy Club.

Every year on the same day, people from around the world hold events and activities that celebrate the moon.

The rest of the museum will not be open during the event. It is weather dependent and may be canceled if circumstances do not permit.

The event is free and open to the public.
