You could write a poem about the beauty of the moon, because Fly Me to the Moon is the GAM theme for 2018.
Or maybe a constellation or stellar pattern has caught your eye...perhaps a lunar eclipse, a flurry of meteors.
Join the fun and enter the AstroPoetry Contest. Poems from children, teens and adults are welcome!

There will be three categories:
1. Children grades 1-6
2. Children & Young Adults grades 7-12
3. Open (Adults)

This year's GAM is celebrating the Moon. Here's a lovely little video A New View of the Moon relating how one amateur astronomer became a sidewalk astronomer. The delight of passers-by is contagious. "look up more often."

Since the Moon is the Global Astronomy Month theme, I thought I'd share this with you.

This NASA Video Tour of the Moon in 4K Is Simply Breathtaking

This week is International Dark Sky Week.

Light pollution isn't just a problem for astronomers. It means the loss of an amenity for all of us now and the generations that follow. It affects the natural world, can ruin our health, wastes resources, and what's more, we're paying for it!

Light Pollution

The Moon moves through Leo.

On the nights of April 23 to 25, 2018, the moon is moving through the constellation Leo the Lion. You can see it pass close to Leo's brightest star Regulus on the 24th. Or if you happen to be watching in Central Russia, you can see the Moon hide [occult] Regulus for a time.

Last summer the Moon eclipsed the Sun, as viewed from Earth. What might we see from the Moon if Earth were eclipsing the Sun?

Total solar eclipse: the Sun a black circle framed by an ethereal corona. Dark enough to see stars, and for birds to go to sleep – yet an eerie darkness unlike night. The Sun can also be eclipsed on other Solar System planets as long as they have moons. But what would we see from our own Moon?

Are There Solar Eclipses on the Moon
