Dorset Moon

12noon until midnight  - Luke Jerram's Museum of the Moon 

Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon is an astounding, illuminated, seven metre diameter spherical sculpture and features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. 
At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit sphere represents 5km of the moon’s surface. 
This incredible installation is a fusion of large-scale NASA lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound audio created by Ivor Novello Award and BAFTA-winning composer Dan Jones.
