During Space Week we are inviting every school in Ireland to have their very own unique picture of the Moon, taken by our TARA telescope network.

We want as many schools as possible to participate in what should be the largest event of its type in the world! The picture sent to each school will have a unique time tag of when their image was taken and as Space Week progresses the images will show the changing phases of the Moon. We will then put these images together into the world’s first moon-phase video taken by stitching together hundreds or thousands of individual images!

Email us at spaceweek@bco.ie to register for your TARA Moon image.

Classroom Resource:

Use the Moon to teach in your classroom with ‘How big is the Moon?’

Fancy some Space Week merchandise for your class? Then simply register on our website and add this classroom resource or any of the toolkits or ideas we have listed as your event.  All registered events will receive Space Week goodies.
