The sun goes down and shortly we are rewarded with the Moon. So, what a joyous (and easy) way to celebrate Observe the Moon Day. To find ways to enjoy the brightest object in the night sky, click here.

From, "International Observe the Moon Night is always held near a first-quarter Moon, which means that the near side of the Moon is about half-illuminated. A first-quarter Moon is great for evening observing as it rises in the afternoon and is high above the horizon in the evening. With the naked eye, you can see dark gray seas of cooled lava called mare."
