400 year-old moon drawings

Published on July 24th, 2009 | by Admin


Drawings of the Moon made 400 years ago are part of a new exhibition on the history of astronomy at the London Science Museum.

The moon maps, the first ever made from telescope observations, were the work of the English astronomer Thomas Harriot.

The exhibition spans many cultures from the 10th to 21st centuries and looks at the various ways humankind has studied the heavens.
