The Moon For All Mankind

the Moon, divided into sections

Monday, 11 May 2009

The UK has the opportunity to take part in an exciting IYA2009 special project: The Moon for All Mankind

This project is being run by the IYA2009 Malta Committee. They have divided the Moon into 45 sections, which will be imaged in different countries around the world and combined in a collage which will be circulated globally by the IYA2009 global task group.

The UK has been assigned sections 41 and 42 (see image above) which includes Tycho crater. We are therefore looking for amateur astronomers to take part in this project and image the relevant sections of the Moon.

The images are to be taken on either 9th May or 7th June 2009, during the full Moon.

If you are interested in being involved in this project, please email the UK Coordinator Steve Owens at:
