Celebrate Africa Day on May 25th with your stories of the Moon

25 May is celebrated as Africa Day every year. There will be a lunar eclipse on 26 May this year, which cannot be seen from Africa, but – the whole world share the same sky, right? And as Africans we have always had a special relationship with the Moon.

Therefore, we want to use the Moon to bring all of us Africans together. In collaboration with the African Astronomical Society, we invite you to share your stories and songs about the Moon. 

How to take part:

We invite you to create a 2-3 minute video on your phones of your stories and songs, either as a selfie or of someone you know telling it. Send them to us through

We will celebrate Africa day by sharing your stories with the world. Please also send us your name, email address and location.
