Celebrate the Blue 'Super' Moon with the School of Earth and Space Exploration

This event last occurred Jan. 31, 2018

Join the School of Earth and Space Exploration’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera team for a celebration of the blue “super” moon.

What is a “blue moon?” What is a “super moon”? What is a "blood moon?” How rare and special are these events? Experts from LROC, the AstroDevils and School of Earth and Space Exploration will be on hand to answer these questions and many more.

Telescopes will be set up for optimal moon viewing (weather permitting) by the ASU AstroDevils. Moon posters, postcards and LROC mission stickers will be provided to all attendees.
