International National Observe the Moon Night September 23

Most folks do not know that I am a bit of a science geek. Not educated at university just lovin' to know how this old world and those around us work. I figure that this master design is not one to be neglected. The understanding of it can be a real joy.
Reading tonight I had the pleasure of reading this article on Discovery News. Fun site. Make a place on your tool bar you will not be disappointed. This may help you understand my appreciation for planting by the moon phases. Of old this wisdom practiced by those who tend the earth made gardening bode well for them. Enjoy...

International Observe the Moon Night.
InOMN has grown out of NASA's most recent missions to explore the Moon up close. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has been sending back loads of pretty pictures and gobs of new science about our nearest astronomical neighbor, and the folks at NASA hosted several outreach events. This year, they are taking the idea global, with hundreds of events where participants can observe and learn about the Moon.
Find an event nearest you using their map and listing. InOMN is having a photo contest with separate categories for beginners and those with more experience. Submissions for this end September 23rd!
