What’s on Soon

Partial Lunar Eclipse – Tonight

The moon will start to become visible over the horizon from 9pm, but the eclipse will not be visible at that time as it’s too close to the horizon. Realistically it’ll be visible from 10pm, and the maximum extent of the eclipse is due at 10:30pm.

During the eclipse, the moon will appear redder than normal.

It will completely finish by midnight. (The next total lunar eclipse visible in the UK is in 2022)

The Moon Festival – Friday 19 to Friday 26 July

This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s giant leap for mankind and there’s no better way to celebrate than at this lunar love in. The Moon Festival is a seven-night celebration with art exhibitions, live music, lectures, moonlit film screenings, night food markets, street parties and more. Look out for a keynote speech by author Margaret Atwood, a talk on the covens of witches up and down the country that worship the moon, a carnivalesque opening street party and lunar fiesta at Royal Museums Greenwich.
