Christina’s Moon – Jill Hedges

9781910578414_50

Ancient people were fascinated by the Moon; the brightest object in the night sky, and used its phases as an early form of calendar. Each of the full moons was given a name that correlated to the arrival and passing of the seasons and with times of feast or famine.

Created using print and collage techniques by artist Jill Hedges, who has had a lifelong fascination with the Moon and the stars, this charming little chapbook tells a tale of enduring love.

Do you know how big the solar system is? It’s really difficult to imagine because the orders of magnitude are so enormous. Can you guess how big or small the planets are? Even with accurate data, it’s really hard to visualise something so far away. On this imaginative 5K walk the solar system is scaled down to a manageable size to give you a better idea of just how much space there is…..in space!
