NASA & Astronomy Ireland Observe The Moon Night
To celebrate NASA's billion dollar Moon missions LRO and LCROSS that discovered so much about the Moon in October 2010 a Moon Watch has been organised annually since then and now has over 800 events worldwide as part of NASA's "International Observe the Moon Night"
This year, due to Covid-19 restrictions Astronomy Ireland are encouraging everyone in the country to get out, even at their own home and using the naked eye or low cost binoculars observe the Moon, on this 'International Observe the Moon Night' on October 16th, the Moon can be seen all night from sunset at 6:30pm until after midnight.
"The Moon is full of details to see like craters, mountains, vast lava lakes and more.
It is by the far the most spectacular object to see in a telescope.
It is great be joining forces with NASA focus on the Moon for one night a year, even if we cannot do it together!" said David Moore, editor of Astronomy Ireland magazine.
We are encouraging everyone to take a picture, even with your smartphone and send it to [email protected] for publication in our magazine.
