Celebrate Virtual International Observe the Moon Night with NASA
GREENBELT, Md., Oct. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The public is invited to participate in several of NASA's virtual activities in celebration of International Observe the Moon Night on Saturday, Oct. 16. This celebration provides opportunities to learn about lunar science and exploration, observe celestial bodies, and honor personal and cultural connections to the Moon.
A week of festivities begins with the "Global Moon Party" on Oct. 9 from 6-9 p.m. EDT, continues with social media activities, and ends with International Observe the Moon Night on Oct. 16. Public participation will be open through Oct. 23.
The Moon will be a waxing gibbous on Oct. 16, offering great opportunities for viewing along the terminator – the line between night and day.
How to participate:
NASA has pursued lunar exploration for decades. Later this year, the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket will launch – the first in a series of missions that will land the first woman and first person of color on the Moon in the coming years with the Artemis program.
Refer to NASA's Moon viewing guides to make the most of your observations:
