Today is International Moon Day, and I'm excited to share my curated Moon page blog.jatan.space/our-moon 🌗

I’ve handpicked resources and self-written articles to get people from all backgrounds excited and informed about our Moon as we mount a grand return.

@steven_ovadia I see. How do you deal with the noise on Discord? By gating entries or moderation or both?
