International Observe the Moon Night
International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN) is an annual worldwide public event that encourages observation and appreciation of the Moon. All are invited to learn more about the Moon and its connection to NASA planetary science and exploration, as well our cultural and personal connections to it. Each year, thousands of people participate in InOMN at museums, planetaria, schools, universities, observatories, parks, businesses, and backyards around the world. Any astronomy club, interested group, or individual, anywhere, can host an InOMN event; events range from small family gatherings to community events that draw hundreds of visitors.

After UAA STEM Day
ConocoPhillips Integrated Science Building
Free planetarium shows, hands-on activities and telescope viewing of the night sky (weather permitting)
This will begin as soon as the sky is dark enough to see the moon. Telescopes will be set up on the top floor of the East Parking Garage behind the ConocoPhillips Integrated Science Building. We ask that if people want to participate that they park on the 1st or 2nd floor and take the elevator to the third floor to reduce the light polution near the telescopes. This activity is based on the weather. If the sky is overcast or there is a chance of percipication, we will not be taking the telescopes out.
