Mark your calendars folks, September 18 is International Observe the Moon Night!

Astronomers Without Borders (AWB) is partnering with NASA missions and centers, along with other institutions, to bring the excitement of observing and learning about Earth’s closest neighbor in space to the worldwide public.

Join professional and amateur astronomers, astronomy clubs, planetariums, science centers and astronomy enthusiasts around the world in celebrating our closest celestial companion, the Moon. If you belong to an astronomy club or society, start planning your events now and be a part of something very special! Most of us take the Moon for granted, I mean we see it almost every night (or day) don’t we? But the fact is that the Moon has special significance in almost every culture and society around the world, and not only that, but to see the surface of the Moon through a telescope is truly breathtaking!
