About This Show

The Moon is our nearest neighbour, and September is the month of the Harvest Moon. Even with the naked eye, you can see bright regions and darker patches on the Moon. Use binoculars or a telescope and you will see a tremendous amount of detail. The large, dark plains are called 'seas', but there has never been any water in them.

Explore the Moon with us at the Planetarium - it's a rugged little world, with mountains, valleys, and a vast number of circular walled structures called craters. Learn about the phases of the Moon, how it raises the ocean tides, how it regulates Earth's climate, and how it is slowly making our day longer.
