At this year's Orkney International Science Festival in September the Moon put in an appearance. And not just in the sky! It dropped into the local school for all to see. The exhibition was by SkyranMOON and it tours around the UK. It was fascinating to see, and as the building isn't that high you could get really close up to it! OK, so it was really a giant balloon, BUT it was a proper representation of the proper moon with all the geological features. There were talks and lectures and various sound effects. I only had a short time to pop in but just sat and gazed at it (as I do the real moon!). It was fun and really educational for kids and adults alike! So here are a few pictures of The Moon!
Hundreds of people young and old went to visit the exhibition. Brilliant idea!
