International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN) is an annual event that is dedicated to encouraging people to ‘look up’ and take notice of our nearest neighbor, the Moon. From looking at the Moon with a naked eye to using the most sensitive telescope, every year on the same day, people from around the world hold events and activities that celebrate our Moon.
On International Observe the Moon Night, the Observatory will present the program, Apollo to the Moon where Observatory visitors will get to use our big telescope to take a close look at the Apollo 12 and 14 landing areas as Observatory staff members tell of the challenges and achievements of the missions.
The Observatory presents regularly scheduled public programs every Friday and Saturday evening throughout the year. The Observatory is open from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. during the month of September.
