Imagining the Moon: A History of Lunar Visualizations

Join Marcy Bidney, curator of the UWM Libraries’ American Geographical Society Library (AGSL), as she explores the history of visualizing the moon, from pretelescopic 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. For more information, visit http://uwm.edu/planetarium
