Bounce off the Moon!
To thank those locations who hosted InOMN events in 2015, the InOMN coordinating committee, in partnership with OPTICKS and CosmoQuest, bounced a map of all 554 registered events off the Moon! The Moonbounce took place during a live Google Hangout On-Air hosted by CosmoQuest on Tuesday, 27 October 2015. A recording of the event can be viewed here.
In addition to the events map, photographs from InOMN events around the world were selected in a random drawing. These images were drawn from the InOMN Flickr, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. A family photo left on the Moon by Apollo 16 astronaut Charlie Duke and a photo of the Moon taken from the International Space Station were also included in the Moonbounce. These 12 images, and what they looked like after being bounced off the Moon, are displayed below.
