The moon is our closest celestial neighbor and the focus of scientific interest and new explorations. In the last 100 years, we have learned a lot about that object that we all can easily see in the night sky night and day. Come to learn more about what we know about the moon and how we know it, as well as how you can capture great pictures of the moon. Also, hear about both the U.S. and international mission plans to the Moon and what they hope to discover.
