At Miraikan, like last year, various events related to the seasonal moon will be held for this year. The harvest moon will be visible on October 3.
This year is a memorable one for moon exploration as it is the final year for the operation of the moon observation satellite "KAGUYA" that was launched in September 2007. It is also the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11's landing on the moon. Please don't miss this opportunity.
