Mark your calendar Oct. 16th, 2021 and remember to celebrate by getting out and observing this magnificent celestial object or taking a little bit of time to learn something new about the Moon.
Here are just a few ways that you can get involved this year:
1. Each year I offer a 3 hour Viewing the Universe with Telescopes Workshop at the NASA IV&V ERC that certifies you to borrow a set of 12 telescopes to use with your group for 2 weeks at a time. I am continuing this “IOtMN” tradition with the training at Fairmont State University on Thursday. Oct. 14th from 6p.m. -9p.m. Any adult who works with children or in education may register here<https://docs.google.com/f
2. Explore Earth’s Moon with NASA’s Solar System Exploration<https://solarsyste
3. Browse the Moon’s cratered surface, the Apollo Landing sites, or elevation maps with Google Moon<https://www.google.com/mo
4. Download the FREE software known as Virtual Moon Atlas Pro 6<https://www.lpi.usra.edu/mee
Also, two great space places in West Virginia, and see what they are offering. Both have Facebook pages and great people who will be happy to talk with you.
