When was the last time you looked at the Moon?

The Moon gives rhythm to our days, inspiration for our stories, and a place to journey to, even if only in our imagination.

When was the last time you looked at the Moon? Not just noticed it, but really looked at it? To most of us the Moon seems like an afterthought, a thing we might notice in passing and then not give a second glance. But the Moon’s place in our lives is so much more than just its physical presence in the sky. It is a constant companion in our collective imagination.

The Moon gives rhythm to our days, inspiration for our stories, and a place to journey to, even if only in our imagination. Our view of the Moon, shaped and formed by the imaginations of the poets and artists of days long past continues to be changed and renewed by the thinkers and visionaries of today.

The Moon has been a source of wonder for all of human history. Adler’s 2019 sky show, Imagine the Moon, explores how the Moon has inspired human creativity, learning, and exploration ever since we have looked to the sky.

Each discovery has brought new opportunities to contemplate and imagine, until, driven by dreams, we left Earth and went there in the amazing journeys that culminated in astronauts walking on the Moon. People have imagined the Moon as a glowing disk in the sky, a destination in space, and a world that shares its origin with the Earth. The power of human imagination continues to inspire our relationship with the Moon as our partner in space and companion in our sky.
