Museum of the Moon art installation to tour Scotland
The art exhibition will be at two locations across Scotland over summer.
The moon is coming to Scotland as part of an exhibition.
A seven-metre circumference art installation, named Museum of the Moon, will be in Glasgow and Largs over the summer.
Created by artist Luke Jerram, the moon has been stunning viewers across the world and now Scots will get to see the high detailed installation for themselves.
The piece is a 1:500,000 scale replica, with NASA providing the high resolution images for the giant sphere.
Mr Jerram said: "From the beginning of human history, the moon has acted as a 'cultural mirror' to our beliefs, understanding and ways of seeing.
"Over the centuries, the moon has been interpreted as a god and as a planet. It has been used as a timekeeper, calendar and to aid nighttime navigation.
"Different cultures around the world have their own historical, cultural, scientific and religious relationships to the moon."
He added: "Museum of the Moon allows us to observe and contemplate cultural similarities and differences around the world, and consider the latest moon science."
Each host venue is given free rein to create its own programme of lunar-inspired events beneath the moon, meaning no two shows will be the same.
In Glasgow, the installation will be hosted by UZ Arts from the June 12 to 24 and in Largs by the Kelburn Garden Party from June 29 to July 1.
