Luke Jerram's giant glowing moon installation was supposed to make a special guest appearance at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl in May, as part of the now cancelled Rising Festival. But for a brief time instead, Museum of The Moon has descended on the Plaza at Bunjil Place, where you can see it in all its intricately detailed glory, until Sunday, July 4.

The UK artist's renowned moon replica is set to impress audiences with its shimmering presence, clocking in at seven metres in diameter. The well-travelled artwork was constructed using real NASA imagery of the lunar surface, with each centimetre of its face representing five kilometres of the actual moon.

Complementing the internally-lit orb, expect a striking musical composition created by BAFTA- and Ivor Novello-award winning composer Dan Jones for a truly multi-sensory moon-gazing experience. You can catch Museum of The Moon for free — it'll appear daily at Bunjil Place from 11am until 9pm.
