Time Out says

Luke Jerram’s six-metre glowing sculpture of the moon is a beloved outdoor installation that’s done the rounds of London a couple of times before, but we’re always excited for a chance to touch back down on its pitted surface as it returns to Greenwich’s Painted Hall. In essence, it’s a huge glowing sphere decorated in Nasainspired detail and it looks really, really cool, especially after dark when it’s all lit up. There’s an accompanying surround sound composition by BAFTA-winning composer Dan Jones and visitor daybeds so you can lie down and gaze up to the beautifully illuminated landscape of the moon suspended high against the Painted Hall’s Baroque backdrop.

If you’re going for a new pic to add to your Insta feed, book via a separate link on Mondays when posing and selfies are encouraged.
