Everyone is invited to join other Moon enthusiasts worldwide for International Observe the Moon Night – a global public event that encourages observation, appreciation and understanding of the Moon’s connection to NASA exploration, discovery, and exploration.
Join NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center on Oct. 16, 2021, for the Virtual Observation Party at 6: 00 p.m. CDT via the Facebook event page.
This virtual event is brought to you by the Planetary Missions Program Office at Marshall and the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. It will also feature a planetarium and interviews with citizen and planetary scientists. There will also be an interview about the Artemis missions. Don’t miss this informative and entertaining program!
It’s a great way to celebrate the Moon alongside people from all over the world, as the excitement grows for NASA’s return to our closest celestial neighbour with the Artemis missions. Artemis will be the first woman and the first person of color to land on the Moon. It will use innovative technologies to discover areas of the lunar surface not previously explored.
Since 2010, the celebration has occurred annually in September or October when the Moon is around first quarter – a great phase for excellent viewing opportunities.
