Join in the fun with this worldwide celebration of the moon during the sixth annual International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN). Since 2010 InOMN has coordinated events and activities around the world to learn and observe about the moon.
In the Adirondacks, one place to learn more about the moon is through the Lake George Land Conservancy's (LGLC) annual program featuring Rosemary Milham, Ph.D's outdoor presentation at the UpYonda Farm in Bolton Landing from 6:30 - 7:30 pm.
The attached Moon Observation Log allows you, your family and/or children to track the moon's cycle, recording the various finds. Enjoy!
InOMN is coordinated by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Education and Communications Team, NASA's Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute, the Lunar and Planetary Institute, the Planetary Science Institute, the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, and CosmoQuest as well the Science Festival Alliance and Google Lunar X Prize.
