8pm this Friday we have Jacquie Milner running the latest in her great series of beginners talks, this month it's that old chestnut The Moon!
The Moon is always there, but how often do look at it? I mean, really look at it? Let’s take this opportunity to have a closer look at our closer neighbour that you have been neglecting. This Beginners Night we will explore the major features of the Moon, lunar nomenclature, results from recent missions in the 21st Century, and show you some of the more interesting places that deserve a second look. You might be surprised what you can see from a different angle!
