In this special family special Sky Tonight show, held before the predicted sighting of the next New Crescent Moon, a Royal Observatory Greenwich astronomer will guide you through the night sky, highlighting Arabic tales about characters and creatures that people imagined seeing by joining together the bright stars in the sky. The astronomer will also highlight the Moon and why it seems to change shape over the course of a month. Access to the historic part of the Royal Observatory Greenwich is included in the ticket price and from 12:45pm visitors will be able to visit our free drop-in 'Young Astronomers Workshop' and talk to our Observatory Explainers there.
