International Observe the Moon Night

20th October at 8pm in AI Headquarters
in association with NASA

 

 

This International event has been held since 2010 when NASA spent billions of dollars on two lunar missions - LRO and LCROSS - and wanted to celebrate what they had discovered and learned.

They even photographed the Apollo landing sites and released pictures of the tracks the astronauts left!

It is co-ordinated worldwide by the Events Outreach Coordinator Staci Tiedeken at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre and is a celebration of all things lunar. (Staci is a former intern at Astronomy Ireland - well done Staci!)

Come along and experience looking at the Moon through some of the most powerfule telescopes in Ireland available to the general public.

You'll not just see the craters, but mountains inside the craters, the telescopes are that powerful.

There's also be a short talk to open the event at 8pm by our Chairman and magazine editor David Moore about the Moon, including when Neil Armstrong told him he was Irish!

 

The event will will be held at our Headquarters in Blanchardstown (just off the M50) For map and directions visit: www.astronomy.ie/map

The event is suitable for all ages, and we encourage families, children and adults to come along.

****SCOUT/SCHOOL GROUPS****
While we encourage scout and school groups to come along please call ahead in order to confirm if there are any prior groups arranged to come along. This makes it easier for our volunteers to enable all groups to view these amazing sights.
