From your backyard to the National Air and Space Museum, here's where you can celebrate 'International Observe the Moon Night.'
Saturday night is “International Observe the Moon Night,” or InOMN for short. Observers and lovers of the moon, like me, all around the world will be observing it and sponsoring viewing events.
As NASA writes on its InOMN webpage, “International Observe the Moon Night is upon us! Join the worldwide celebration of lunar exploration and science on Oct. 20, 2018, by observing the moon in all of its beautiful splendor. Every year since 2010, International Observe the Moon Night invites participants all over the world to come together, watch the Moon, and celebrate our nearest celestial neighbor.”
On a personal note, I watched the LRO being built at NASA’s Goddard Spaceflight Center, and have kept up to speed with the mission throughout the years. LRO is currently the only active American lunar mission, and has enough fuel for another ten years of operations.
