International Observe the Moon Night


This event is weather-dependent. In case of rain or cloudy skies, this event may be cancelled.


Sept. 6, 2014, 7:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

Join the faculty, staff and students of Morehead State University's department of Earth and Space Science on September 6th from 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm at the Space Science Center for the 5th Annual International Observe the Moon Night! 

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. 

MSU professors will speak on the composition and formation of the moon with a special talk by Dr. Eric Jerde about "How we know we went to the Moon". There will also be telescopes set up for viewing the moon and other objects in the night sky along with different activities for the whole family throughout the night!
