Observe the Moon Night

Moon Night 2020 Poster

Observe the Moon Night is coming up on the 26th September. Each year we mark this, usually with an event but 2020 is no ordinary year!

However, moon gazing is something everyone can do from home and we encourage you to get out and take a look at our nearest neighbour in the Sky. You can do this from your garden or why not visit the Mayo Dark Sky Park – see our recommended viewing points at the following link: https://www.mayodarkskypark.ie/visit/viewing-points

The first quarter phase is a good time for viewing the moon along the terminator (the line between light and dark), as shadows enhance the Moon’s features more clearly.

Take a look at this guide/resource with loads of information, moon maps and activities for all the family!
