The moon has been observed and drawn from earth for over 2000 years. But only since the Lunar 3 mission in 1959 and subsequent NASA Apollo missions have we known the appearance of the far side.
Created using NASA survey data, with elevations somewhat exaggerated, we believe this little pocket lunar globe is as topographically correct as a hand made moon at a scale of 1:65,584,905 can be. That translates to a tiny 5cm diameter!
‘We are thrilled with the two globes (celestial and terrestrial) and the moon we commissioned from the Little Globe Company. They are very finely made, interesting, and have been quite a talking point with our friends and family. They look beautiful displayed in the study and I look at them every day.’
