A lunar lesson with Selwyn Holland

Learning about the Moon in the week of the full moon before Easter. Science and maths educator Selwyn Holland is our guest fielding questions about the origins of the moon, how it effects the tides, and what explains the changing visibility of the moon from Earth. The below photos of the Moon were all taken by Selwyn from his observatory. Aren’t they marvellous!
