Join Lumen, Hackney Arts and Polaroid Originals at Phytology, Bethnal Green Nature Reserve for an unmissable evening. Astronomer Paul Hill of Sirius Astronomy will take us on a skywards guided tour, talking lunar science and helping us to view the stars and the Moon through a collection of telescopes. With help from the renowned Lumen collective, east London’s art collective dedicated to astronomy and light, you will be guided in taking a unique photograph of the Moon for you to keep which will be printed out using an instant-print lab.
