Give someone the universe!
Don't miss the Leonid Meteor Shower and Lunar Eclipse double whammy! It starts tonight as the Leonids - one of the year's best meteor shower displays - peak after midnight. Then, less than 24-hours later, a 99% Partial Lunar Eclipse will begin all over the United States.
If you want more info about how, when, and where to look for meteors during a shower, download my newsletter, "Autumn Showers" from Fall 2013.

The Moon on IOMN - 2019
Each year, usually in October, NASA hosts International Observe the Moon Night (IOMN). It is held on the Saturday closest to the lunar first quarter, because it is at the "half-moon" phase when the shadows and contrast show the moon at her very best.
This year, the event will be hosted in the USA on the night of October 16th. All over the world, there will be IOMN events to let anyone and everyone view our closest celestial neighbor. In fact, AAAZ has registered to hold a lunar event right here in Tucson, AZ. Go to our Contact Us page to send an email for more info. Or, you can visit the NASA website to learn about or even host your own Lunar Viewing Program.
