A new look at our familiar yet endlessly mysterious neighbour in the heavens above.

From lighting up the night sky to affecting our tides, the Moon has a huge and sometimes unfathomable influence on our planet.

Using new filming techniques that allow us to see the Moon like never before, this film follows the monthly lunar cycle around the planet, exploring how it affects life on Earth and why we are so fascinated by it.

It also reveals more about a total solar eclipse and explains why America experienced its first one in nearly a century in the summer of 2017.

And if you’ve noticed the Moon looking even more spectacular than normal recently, that’s because it’s been a bumper year for the ‘Super Moon’.
