Welcome to TheMoon.ie, a one stop shop for all things lunar. As the human race is planning a return to the Moon, now is a great time to familiarise yourself with our nearest neighbour. As part of a nation wide Science Foundation Ireland drive to bring science to the public, this outreach website is packed with information and entertaining activities all based on our Moon and all for you, for free – Enjoy and I wish you clear skies.


A Cloudy Eclipse

The partial solar eclipse was disrupted by clouds (what’s new?) I just managed to get this shot about 60 seconds after the maximum of the event when the Moon covered about 10% of the Sun’s face. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wGf9vfIWOM&t=3s for more detail. And https://themoon.ie for more information.

Establishment of A Lunar Observatory Group

I was delighted to be invited by the Irish Astronomical Society to coordinate the establishment of the Lunar Observation Group (LOG). As part of our program of activities we are launching ‘Moonlight’, the newsletter of LOG. You can download your free copy here and I hope to hear from you. The IAS is always looking for new members and it is great to have access to their expertise and equipment. If you would like to develop your interest in astronomy please do contact the IAS or any local Astronomy club. – I wish you clear skies.
