Landing in Exeter: the Museum of the Moon

SolarPunk or LunarPunk?

A seven-metre representation of the moon by celebrated artist Luke Jerram is to go on display at Exeter Cathedral from Thursday 3 February.

The internally-lit sculpture, which will be suspended from the cathedral’s famous nave ceiling, features high-resolution NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the artwork represents 5km of the actual moon’s surface. The installation is to be accompanied by a ‘sound composition’ created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer, Dan Jones.

Tickets to see Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon cost £5 per person, including entry to the cathedral, and are available from the Exeter Cathedral website

Organisers at the cathedral have also planned a programme of moon-themed special events: “There will be something for everyone to celebrate the landing of Museum of the Moon in Exeter.”
