Here's how to watch the Moonlight Night 2018 online tonight!



Tonight (October 20) is International Observe the Moon Night, an annual celebration that allows people around the world to enjoy the science and beauty of our nearest neighbor. With two livestreams you can participate online.

The online astronomy service Slooh presents a livestream starting at 8 pm. EDT (GMT Oct 21). It shows live telescope feeds of the Moon from amateur astronomers worldwide and live feeds from Slooh's observatories. Slooh presents feeds from the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands and the Catholic University in Santiago, Chile. Questions during the show can be made with the hashtag #ObserveTheMoon. You can watch the livestream on Slooh's website, and you can also see it here on Space.com, courtesy of Slooh. [The Moon! 1

But if you have a live feed of the moon you run yourself , Slooh has a contest for you. Post a link to your livestream on Twitter and be sure to mark @slooh. The Slooh hosts – along with the audience – will announce the best feeds at the end of the show. The categories include the most exotic place, the best background scenery and the sharpest live images. The winners will not only be featured on the Slooh website, but will also receive a copy of Slooh's anthology of the short literature on outer space, "The Saturn Above."

Slooh astronomer Paige Godfrey "will talk in detail about our next neighbor, the only other celestial bodies that humans have stepped on," Slooh officials said in a statement. "We will treat the importance of the moon in history as inspiration for storytelling and myth making."

Another livestream will show the moon over the historic city of Rome. The Virtual Telescope Project aims to show the moon hanging over the famous monuments of the Eternal City, with live commentary by astrophysicist Gianluca Masi, founder of the Virtual Telescope project. This livestream will start at 11:00 am EDT (1660 UTC)
