Recent Lunar Science Discoveries and an Opportunity to Celebrate Them

by Andrea Jones (Planetary Science Institute at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center)

International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN) is a worldwide, public celebration of lunar science and exploration held annually since 2010. 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 Earth’s nearest neighbor. Go look at the Moon! And invite your students and their families to join you.

In this edition of The Universe in the Classroom, learn about how you can get involved in International Observe the Moon Night, and how recent NASA missions have changed the way we view our nearest celestial neighbor.
