For MoonWatch, let's observe the phases and some features of the Moon. 

You can use naked eye observations, look through binoculars, or a telescope. Understanding Moon Phases is a great place to start appreciating the Moon!

Make sure you share your experience with the world on Facebook or the Flickr group and Tweet using #GAM2013 and/or #MoonWatch hashtag (@gam_awb).

The Discover the COSMOS Challenge is a great opportunity, open to teachers, trainers, and students from all over the world. Read more.
