How to make the observations?
During the observations you can fill the Observational Sheet. In the Observational Sheet you can introduce data about the time of your observations, about the calculations of the height of the Moon above the horizon, draw the phases of the Moon and report the observations some maria, craters and mountains. You can calculate the size of suggested features and the height of mountains. After observations and calculations you can send the Observational Sheet to the Observational Archive (email@example.com). The Observational Archive will present the information about your observations (name of participants, country, school and degree, time of observations, size calculation of the observed features) on the Moonwalkers Project's website.
Every clear night you have to observe:
1. The phases of the Moon
2. The lunar maria
3. The lunar craters
4.The lunar mountains and peaks
5. Transient Lunar Phenomena
We propose that you observe some of the objects from the lists and that you calculate their sizes.
