Taking it in, Lauren Booth takes a photograph during her visit to the Festival of the Moon at Winchester Cathedral.

Visitors were able to wander the majestic nave by moonlight thanks to this breathtaking installation. Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120 dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface, filling the 11th-century building.
