Astronomy and Islam: Introduction @ The Royal Observatory

Astronomy and Islam: Introduction @ The Royal Observatory

We will join an astronomer for a special show featuring the New Crescent Moon and the history of studying it.  

Held before the predicted sighting of the next New Crescent Moon, a Royal Observatory Greenwich astronomer will guide you through the steps to observe this phase, discuss the difficulties in defining a first sighting and will provide a general overview of the sky this month. Also the astronomer will trace back the study of our nearest cosmic neighbour to Arabic astronomers who helped form our modern understanding of the Moon's movements and appearance.

Visitors will be able to extend their stay beyond the show as access to the historic part of the Royal Observatory Greenwich is included in the ticket price.

On the way back we plan to stop off for dinner and prayers at Regent park masjid Insha Allah, and may be visit regent park itself.
