Mapping of the Moon marks moon landing with exhibition of lunar maps

Cassini’s Moon Map, first published in 1679, is one of the first scientific maps of the moon.

The Map House has created an exhibition of lunar maps created in the 300 years leading up to the first moon landing, which took place 50 years ago today.
The Mapping of the Moon: 1669-1969 contains around 80 celestial maps from the 17th century, alongside 20 moon globes and scientific instruments.
