International Observe the Moon Night

On Sept. 18, 2010, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter EPO Team, the NASA Lunar Science Institute, and the Lunar and Planetary Institute are teaming up to promote the First Annual International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN). This night will be dedicated to encouraging as many people as possible, worldwide, to spend an evening observing and learning about the Moon. The goal of InOMN is to engage lunar science and education communities, amateur astronomers, space enthusiasts, and the general public in annual lunar observation campaigns that share the excitement of lunar science and exploration.

Information about InOMN and the Moon, a map of all registered events, step-by-step instructions on hosting your own event, activities, a Moon map, star charts, a lunar photography contest, and other resources are available at http://observethemoonnight.org/
