International Observe the Moon Night
Oct. 8, 2011, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The second annual International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN) will take place on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011. People around the world will celebrate by pausing to look up at Earth's nearest neighbor -- and learning about it too!
This year's theme focuses on cultural connections to the moon and connecting art to science, through the question: What does the moon mean to you?
The NASA Goddard Visitor Centers InOMN event will feature:
- Talks by NASA lunar scientists
- Moon stories from cultural groups
- Hands-on activities, such as Impact Paintings and Oreo Phases
- A ‘Science as Art’ gallery
- An art gallery featuring art YOU make at the event!
- 'Science on a Sphere' presentations
- Telescope viewing
- And more!
Anyone of any age who is excited about the Moon is welcome to attend.
