Some future astronauts took a journey to the moon Friday night.
The Kopernik Observatory and Science Center held a lunar explorations class. Third and fourth graders learned all about the Earth's natural satellite.
Contrary to what Mick might think---the moon is not made of green cheese --in fact, some of the rock it's made of is a type of rock commonly found on the East Coast of the United States.
"The moon rocks from the Mountains of the moon is something called aorthosite and you can actually find that in the Adirondacks. Mounty Marcy area is made of the anorthosite so it's the same type of rock," says Roy Williams, Public Programming Coordinator.
On Saturday night, Kopernik will be at the Barrnes and Noble in Vestal with Cornell astronomer Greg Sloan who will explain "what is science?"
