SPACE India will be celebrating ‘International Observe the Moon Night’ on Saturday, Oct. 28 all across India at different venues.
International Observe the Moon Night is an annual worldwide public event that encourages observation, appreciation and understanding of our moon and its connection to NASA planetary science and exploration. The annual event connects scientists, educators and lunar enthusiasts from around the world.
International Observe the Moon Night is an opportunity to celebrate new scientific discoveries as well as our personal and cultural connections to the Moon. The Moon is a cornerstone of Solar System science; a stepping-stone for exploration beyond our celestial backyard. After the sun sets, head outside and catch a glimpse of the Moon. The event will include Lunar (Moon) Observation. Everyone on Earth is invited to dedicate one day each year to observing and learning about the Moon.
International Observe the Moon Night is sponsored by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) mission and partners. LRO is managed by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
