This programme is run in collaboration with the New Crescent Society.

Our Astronomy and Islam shows are held before the predicted sighting of the next New Crescent Moon. A Royal Observatory Greenwich astronomer will guide you through the stars in a special planetarium show followed by a short presentation from the New Crescent Society, a Muslim community-led astronomy organisation. Free entry to the Historic Royal Observatory Site is included with this show.

There are a few variations of this show, each focusing on slightly different aspects.

SOLD OUT Saturday 9 December: The Sun

10:30am | Royal Observatory Greenwich
