The moon will seem close enough to touch during The Virtual  Telescope Project's remote, online lunar observing session. Have fun with plenty of friends from all around the planet!

This year Virtual Telescope's host Dr. Gianluca Masi will be joined by artist and one of AWB's astroartist Bettina Forget as they show you various craters on our closest neighbor. Bettina will be conducting a Sketching the Moon workshop on 29 April, 2018 as a follow-up to this very special program.

Join in to find your own crater, mount or sea while flying over our ancient satellite, with our live narration. We promise you an unforgettable event.

To watch this event is easy, simply head to the Virtual Telescope's WebTV.
