Event information

Saturday, September 26 is International Observe the Moon Night! You are invited to join people around the world to learn about lunar science and exploration, take part in celestial observations, and honor cultural and personal connections to the Moon.

You can participate in International Observe the Moon Night from wherever you are. Attend or host a virtual or in-person event, or observe the Moon from home. The Moon will be close to first quarter – a great phase for evening observing.

Connect with fellow lunar enthusiasts around the world through our Facebook page, #ObserveTheMoon on your preferred social media platform, and the International Observe the Moon Night Flickr group. We encourage you to interpret ‘observe’ broadly. However you choose to observe, please follow local guidelines on health and safety.
