International Observe the Moon Night is a worldwide, public celebration of lunar science and exploration held annually since 2010. One day each year, everyone on Earth is invited to observe and learn about the Moon together, and to celebrate the cultural and personal connections we all have with Earth's nearest neighbor.
The International Observe the Moon Night Coordinating Committee is led by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Public Engagement Team, with representatives from NASA's Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute, the Lunar and Planetary Institute, the Planetary Science Institute, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, CosmoQuest and the Science Festival Alliance.
The 2019 event will be held on October 5th. To learn more about International Observe the Moon Night, please visit the event website at moon.nasa.gov/observe or contact Andrea Jones.
