  • International Observe the Moon Night
    All day

    International Observe the Moon Night is a worldwide celebration of lunar science and exploration. One day each year, everyone on Earth is invited to observe and learn about the Moon together, and to celebrate the cultural and personal connections we all have with our nearest neighbor.
    This year the event occurs on October 20th, when the Moon is around first quarter. A first quarter Moon is visible in the afternoon and evening, a convenient time for most participants. Furthermore, the best lunar observing is typically along the dusk/dawn terminator, where shadows are the longest, rather than at full Moon.
    Come to the Charlotte Library now and pick up a moon map and a Moon Observation Log that is meant to be filled in over a month's time to familiarize the observer of the phases of the moon.
