Marcy Bidney, curator of the UWM Libraries’ American Geographical Society Library (AGSL), will speak tonight about the history of visualizing the moon, from pre-telescopic observations that imagined what the moon might look like to lunar cartography up through the space age. This free presentation includes a special exhibit of lunar maps, globes, atlases, and photos from the AGSL’s collections.
This event is part of the UWM Planetarium’s 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing event series. July 20, 2019 marks the monumental achievement, 50 years ago, of the first time humans set foot on another world. [Source: Nisenet.org]
