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.
