Between the Moon and the stars

March 21, 2019 - March 22, 2020

Free event.

The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory enters a galactic realm with the Between the Moon and the Stars exhibition marking the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing by NASA’s Apollo 11.

Get up close to a lunar meteorite and discover the connection between sea-worms and lunar phases when you embark on this stellar journey through the exhibition Between the Moon and the Stars.

The connection with life on Earth and the Solar System has defined our existence from ancient cultures to the present day. Travellers and famous navigators such as Captain Cook, Magellan and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders looked to celestial navigation to guide them across land and sea to create history.

Between the Moon and the Stars is an intriguing showcase exploring how the Moon and its phases continue to impact on animal and human life. The exhibition includes ancient Aboriginal astronomical knowledge, dreaming stories and the history of stargazing in Australia.
