This is the view of the Moon that we had from the BAA stand at New Scientist Live today at the Excel Centre in London. This 7m diameter globe of the Moon by Luke Jerram has been touring the world and it is an amazing thing to see close up. It's a wonderful fusion of art and science and made a great target for us today when we were showing people the Moon through our telescopes even though it was the "wrong" side.
