Project Description

To the Moon with NASA!

Find out about lunar science and keep up-to-date with lunar news through NASA’s official Moon website and social media accounts. Discover key points of interest on the Moon and browse our collection of images taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, a spacecraft that has been orbiting – and reshaping our understanding of – the Moon since 2009.

With the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission, we are building on the legacy of Apollo, providing context to the places people walked on the Moon, and allowing for new interpretation of those sites. This mission is also paving the way for NASA’s Artemis program, which will land the first woman and the next man on the Moon by 2024.

Discover International Observe the Moon Night, a worldwide celebration of lunar science and exploration, celestial observation, and our cultural and personal connections to the Moon. Every autumn, we invite everyone on Earth to observe, learn about, and celebrate the Moon together. People participate by attending or hosting events, or as individual lunar observers. Connect online with fellow lunar enthusiasts around the world through #ObserveTheMoon on social media. The next International Observe the Moon Night will be on Saturday, October 16, 2021. We hope you’ll join us!
