Great idea, Anything that educates the public re: science in general and NASA in particular, is a great idea.

I would love to, but since it's cloudy and rainy where I live, I won't be seeing it.

I check out the sky each and every night (weather permitting) and will be sure not to miss out on the "global swoon". The night sky is a beautiful thing, inspiring so many thoughts, and I never get tired of looking into it.

I don't know. Swooning seems so femme.

Having learned some Druidry I am always looking up at the moon. It's a lovely way to enjoy the night, the seasons and the teachings of the ancestors.

When I first saw this post I thought maybe there was a lunar eclipse, but was dismayed to read that it is just the same old moon and the day is set to get people to pay attention to the moon. While I agree that phases of the moon impact our behaviour I don't agree with science spending tons and tons of money to repeatedly make moon flight missions, or believe in things like the false hope that we can build a moon station to retreat to in the event that we totally destroy our planet. So I am slightly interested in the astonomers out there who decide to look up, but I will likely be looking elsewhere. Thanks.

Sounds interesting, I'll be sure to look. It's kind of rainy and cloudy here in CT so I don't know if I'll be able to see it.

Nice to see some attention being focused on it, but like others have said, why just look at it for one night? Weather permitting I always like to look at the moon and what it is doing. Oh and yeah, it IS the right way up, here in the southern hemisphere too! :-D

I love to look up and see the moon especially in the Fall. I'm lucky to have an apartment with a lot of windows and can watch the moon rise up and set when ever it's clear. I love this idea.
