Please note: as you will no doubt be aware COVID-19 is leading to many events being cancelled or postponed. Please check with the organisers of any event listed here to confirm it is going ahead as planned.

Join an astronomer for a special planetarium show featuring the New Crescent Moon and the history of studying it. Held before the predicted sighting of the next New Crescent Moon, a Royal Observatory Greenwich astronomer will guide you through the steps to observe this phase, discuss the difficulties in defining a first sighting and will provide a general overview of the sky this month. Also the astronomer will trace back the study of our nearest cosmic neighbour to Arabic astronomers who helped form our modern understanding of the Moon's movements and appearance.
