International Observe the Moon Night takes place Saturday, October 12. Look up and take notice of earth’s nearest celestial neighbor. There’s a lot to see with binoculars, a telescope or even just your naked eye.

For even more fun and potential prizes, snap a picture of it and post to Instagram with the hashtag #npldteens for week two of our month-long scavenger hunt. We’ll scroll through everyone’s moon shots and select the best one to re-post in our feed. The winner will also earn a small prize!

Moonrise happens in the Chicago-area right around 2:30 pm, so keep an eye out for it during the day! It sets at 7:45, so be sure to get out to see it in the early evening.

About Donna B

Hi! My main hangout in the Library is the Teen Underground, but you'll find me wandering all over the building. Originally from Northeast Iowa, I've lived in the Chicago area long enough to boo the Packers; but not long enough to pick a side in the Sox-Vs-Cubs civil dispute. I geek out on ginger ale and black licorice, Pottermore sorted me into Slytherin, and if I were a dog I'd be a shiba inu.
