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.
