Help Teens Explore the Unknown Moon

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 in the fall, people from around the world hold events and activities that celebrate our Moon.

Host your own event! Find information and activities about the Moon and missions to the Moon, as well as logos and other resources, on the InOMN website:  http://observethemoonnight.org/

Incorporate FREE resources from the Lunar and Planetary Institute into your InOMN programming! 

Find a wealth of hands-on NASA space science activities in two modules from the Explore — designed for use in libraries and based on inexpensive, easy-to-find materials — at www.lpi.usra.edu/explore. The materials are available FREE for educational use!  While most modules were designed with children ages 8-13 in mind, many of the activities are suitable for multiple ages — and they are all designed to be flexibly implemented in your programming!
