Each year in the fall, millions of people from hundreds of locations in countries across the globe come together to view the Moon and learn about its diverse roles in culture, history, science, and exploration.

This year, International Observe the Moon Night will remember Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong by encouraging participants to "wink at the Moon" on September 22, or the next time you step outside and see the moon.

Find a local event on this world map, and explore the moon with your own eyes.

Use this map to identify the distinctive dark, smooth and nearly crater-less Mare, and the Apollo landing site locations with your own eyes.
