International Observe the Moon Night is a worldwide celebration of lunar science and exploration held annually since 2010. Everyone on Earth is invited to come together and observe and learn about the moon. Each year, thousands of people participate at museums, planetaria, schools, universities, observatories, parks, businesses, or simply at home from backyards.

The event occurs in October, when the moon is around the first quarter and is visible in the afternoon and evening, a convenient time for most of us.

It is particularly poignant this year as it is the Apollo 50th Anniversary, as in1968 humans first visited the moon.

The FREE event in Melbourne is offered by Saxon, who make a range of optical product including telescopes.

You are invited to observe the moon, learn about NASA planetary science and exploration, and celebrate cultural and personal connections to our nearest neighbour.
