Marvellous MoonsIn the year that marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, the Royal Observatory Greenwich is looking beyond our Moon with its new exhibition, Marvellous Moons. While Earth only has one moon, there are in fact hundreds of them - nearly 200 moons have been discovered in our Solar System. All come in different shapes and sizes and some are home to toxic lakes and lava. This new exhibition gives visitors the chance to discover more about these moons with a showcase of 31 illuminated photographs, an interactive display of 100 images from NASA's Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn, and three films exploring the moons of the Solar System.

 

About Royal Observatory Greenwich

This museum of time and space was built by Sir Christopher Wren in 1675. It marks the site of the Greenwich or Prime Meridian - the base point for World Time and the site of Longitude 0. If you time it right, you can watch the timeball drop at 13:00 each day. More about Royal Observatory Greenwich
