ALP Global Astronomy Month (GAM) 2013 MoonWatch
Last April 27, 2013 , some members of the Astronomical League of the Philippines proceeded to Rajah Sulayman Park , Baywalk , Manila to conduct their participation of the Global Astronomy Month (GAM) 2013 celebration by holding a free public viewing of the Waning Gibbous Moon (MoonWatch) despite the early evening's very cloudy weather! They started to setup their telescopes way past 9:30pm as the Moon was still quite low in the SE horizon around 8:00pm. More than 100+ people were able to get a chance of observing not only the Moon but also the planet Saturn as well. They stayed up to around 11:30pm before they ended the session with a group shot. A very successful GAM celebration by the Astronomical League of the Philippines (ALP) !
