International Observe the Moon Night, October 16
October 13, 2021
International Observe the Moon Night will take place on October 16. To celebrate, the LPI will host a Virtual Exploration Experiences with Planetary Scientists (VEEPS) event “Cool Moon!” at 3:00 p.m. CDT. Join us for this free, virtual presentation designed for families and children. Dr. Julie Stopar and LPI intern alumni, Rishi Chandra and Evan Bjonnes, will shed light on the mysterious craters of the lunar south pole that hold water-ice and the key to future exploration of the Moon, and of the solar system. We’ll be joined by education specialists from NASA ARES who will lead us in a virtual game.
International Observe the Moon Night is an annual world-wide public engagement program that encourages observation, appreciation, and understanding of our Moon and its connection to NASA planetary science and exploration. Everyone on Earth is invited to join the celebration by hosting or attending an event.
