Astrophysicists of the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics and the Rosseland Center for Solar Physics invite passers-by to observe the Moon and share the wonder right in Oslo city center, along the harbour promenade.

Logo "on the moon again" event

In July 1969, 600 million people on all the continents followed the first step of a man on the Moon, together with their family or friends, around a radio, sometimes a TV. Fifty years later, we want to feel this enthusiasm for the Moon again in a global, universal movement, transcending all borders.

How? Nothing could be easier. We want everyone, young and old, to discover the Moon through an astronomical telescope in a worldwide event. Surprise passers-by by offering them this unexpected sight.

If you join you can win meteorites and telescopes! Take pictures during On The Moon Again event showing the interaction between people!
