International Observe the Moon Night 2019: online observation – 5 Oct. 2019
Next 5 Oct. 2019, the International Observe the Moon Night is back and it will be a special one. This year we celebrate the 50th Anniversary since the Apollo 11 historic landing and this will add a special flavor to the event. The Virtual Telescope Project will make possible for you to join InOMN 2019 online, live, from the comfort of your home, enjoying the Moon above the stunning skyline of Rome.
The Virtual Telescope Project is a Key Partner of Nasa’s International Observe the Moon Night!
Exploring the Moon is always a unique experience and the International Observe the Moon Night is a superb opportunity to do it! The 2019 edition will add the bonus of the recent celebrations for the Apollo 11’s 50th Anniversary.
To celebrate this important event, the Virtual Telescope Project will offer a live, online observing session to show you our wonderful satellite, with the addition of the legendary skyline of Rome.
We will enjoy the Moon hanging above the celebrated monuments of the Eternal City, with the live commentary of astrophysicist Gianluca Masi, founder of the Virtual Telescope Project. We will also enjoy some details of the lunar surface, including the landing site of the Apollo 11 legendary mission.
Our live streaming will run from the top of the ancient tower of the “Complesso Monumentale di Santo Spirito in Sassia“, datingt back to the VIII Century and offering a stunning view on the Eternal City. This is possible thanks to the very kind availability of the General Direction of the “ASL Roma 1” institution.
The online, free session is scheduled for 5 Oct. 2019, starting at 17:00 UT.
