Moon Landing!

Year 10 GCSE Astronomers were learning everything you ever wanted to know about our only natural satellite on Saturday 8 November.  This was the second of three Saturday classes scheduled to help these dedicated students to cover all their GCSE content in just one year.

The girls learned about the craters, mountains and seas on the Lunar surface, the Apollo missions, how the Moon was formed and why we only ever see one face of the Moon and never the ‘dark side’.

It wasn’t all hard work though, there was time for a little light relief in the form of a Lunar jigsaw comprised of overlapping photos from the National Schools’ Observatory Liverpool Telescope:

‘Yay, we love jigsaws!’

‘This is harder than it looks!’

Head-first Moon landing!

Well done for all your hard work Girls!
