About this Event

Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.
Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.
Between 9-18 March 2018, the 7m diameter model of the Moon is placed in Leicester Cathedral, as part of a joint project led by the University of Leicester to mark British Science Week 2018.
