Observe the Moon Night

STATEWIDE — People all across the globe are joining together tonight, Sept. 26, for International Observe the Moon Night, a NASA-sponsored event aiming to celebrate lunar exploration. The event happens when the moon is in its first quarter. The shadows enhance the moon’s cratered landscape. In addition, this weekend is a little more special. Because of the moon’s slight wobble when orbiting the earth, observers will get to see features of the moon that are usually hidden from plain sight, like lunar craters and the Apollo landing sites.
