Moonsaic

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
