Moore Moon Marathon

The moon is a most familiar sight in our sky - it is the astronomer's friend and was Sir Patrick Moore's favourite object - yet fundamentally we still do not know how it was formed and why its far side looks so different.

The team join astronomers on Blackheath to watch a lunar eclipse, find out how everyone got in the Moore Moon Marathon, the list of fascinating features you can see on the moon, and discuss the new missions that will explore this reassuringly familiar yet still most mysterious of cosmic satellites.
