Moon Scavenger Hunt

The Moon is the best part of our solar system to observe because its rapid 29 ½ day orbit around Earth makes for a tremendous variety of observations in a single month. Over the course of the month you can observe all the phases of the moon as it rises an hour later every day. Enjoy heading outside in the daytime and nighttime to complete this month long lunar scavenger hunt.
