Tonight is International Observe the Moon Night!
While Death Valley National Park is known for its star gazing, we also love to check the moon! With just a simple pair of binoculars, the craters can be seen with much greater detail and the light of a full moon will illuminate the badlands and mountain ranges in its pale reflected light.
For the occasion, NASA will also be livestreaming, which can be seen at: https://moon.nasa.gov/observe-the-moon-night/.
