Discovering the Moon
Saturday 27th March 2021
Start time : 10:00

Surprisingly, Galileo was not the first person to draw the Moon using the newly invented telescope, it was a man from Oxford observing from west London.
We will trace what has been discovered on the Moon through nearly 400 years of observation, since those early telescopes were pointed at our nearest celestial neighbour.
