Event information

Join the NASA Night Sky Network on Wednesday, September 8 at 6:00pm Pacific Time (9:00pm Eastern) to hear Andrea Jones help folks prepare for this year's activities for International Observe the Moon Night.

International Observe the Moon Night is a time to come together with fellow Moon enthusiasts and curious people worldwide. Everyone on Earth is invited to learn about lunar science and exploration, take part in celestial observations, and honor cultural and personal connections to the Moon. This year, International Observe the Moon Night will take place on Saturday, September 26. We have made significant updates to our website and our resource collection in 2020 to accommodate more individual, small group, and virtual participation in this year’s event.
Come learn more about the program, and how you and your club or institution can participate. We’ll highlight program resources including a new event Moon map and Moon viewing guide, advertising materials, and social media shareables. We’ll highlight some recommended hands-on activities, offer tips and resources for hosting virtual events – and for evaluating them. And, we’ll discuss opportunities to stay connected throughout the year. You can ask questions of the International Observe the Moon Night leadership team and of fellow current or prospective event hosts, and share your ideas for your International Observe the Moon Night event.
