The On the Moon Again event invites everyone to observe the Moon on the 12th and 13th of July to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first human Moon landing. At this time, the Moon will be in the waxing gibbous phase, thus offering the opportunity for quality observations after sunset. Activities are encouraged in high-traffic public areas to facilitate public engagement. Various equipment can be used for these observations, including binoculars and telescopes.



Moon Mappers

Moon Mappers is a CosmoQuest citizen science project that allows everyone on Earth to contribute to real science research by helping NASA scientists map the sizes and positions of impact craters on the Moon in images captured by the LRO Camera, and pointing out other interesting features on the lunar surface.
