InOMN events are a fun way to celebrate the Moon with your community!
The official InOMN website, http://observethemoonnight.org, provides a
wealth of information and tips for planning your own event. Partnership
with another organization, such as a local astronomical society, is
preferred. Consider featuring one or more of these activities and
resources at your event:
