International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN) is an educational outreach event sponsored by multiple NASA and astronomical organizations. The LPI Library now has an InOMN moon viewing kit available to check out. The kit, assembled in conjunction with last year’s event, includes a pair of binoculars, a tripod, a lunar globe, several children’s books about the moon, and the braille book Getting a Feel for Lunar Craters. Contact the library for more information about how to borrow it.
The LPI Library will be closed on Monday, February 20, in observance of Presidents’ Day.
