Name : Moonsaic

Description :

The Moonsaics are Keystage 2/3 activity to assemble large pictures of the Moon, at different phases, using a mosaic of lunar observations taken by the Liverpool Telescope. Each of the pictures required a mosaic of between 60 and 100 telescope observations. These were later combined digitally and then split into a number of JPEG images that can be printed out and put back together during the workshop - a bit like a jigsaw puzzle.

Age Range : 7 - 14 years

Workshop Time : 1 hour

Please note that over the weekend of the 26-29th May 2017 we will be switching over to our brand new website - during this time there may be periods where the site is difficult to access, it will not be possible to register with the website, and users will be unable to request observations from the telescope. Please bear with us during this time. All should be back up and running by the 30th May 2017.
