Tonight an American private-public partnership with NASA will send a rocket to orbit the Moon from Virginia. In the New York metro area, you can look to the southern sky at 11:25 PM. The rocket will appear to move from the right to the left as it arcs up slightly off the horizon.
This is a great time to check out our song Peek-a-boo Moon and start a conversation with your kids about the moon.
If you’re not in the viewing area (Maine to North Carolina) you can watch live on space.com
By the way, it’s a New Moon, so you won’t see the moon in the sky tonight. Post your comments if you see the rocket tonight!
