International Observe the Moon Night 2014 — September 6th

International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN) is an annual event 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.

On September 6th, the Columbia Memorial Space Center will join moon gazers from all around the globe as we host our own International Observe the Moon Night event!  The space center will be open late as we invite the community to take in the beauty and wonder of our nearest neighbor.

Telescopes of all sizes will be generously provided by the Columbia Astronomers and available for viewing by the public. Telescope viewing will take place in front of the Space Center and is FREE for everyone!  Admission to the Space Center is $5 (free for ages 3 & under and ASTC Members!)
