Caption

Earth over lunar landscape. Earth rising over jagged rocks on the lunar surface. The mapping of the Moon with telescopes started with Galileo in 1610, and then developed further during the following centuries as telescopes improved. Artworks such as these were based on theories about the origin of the Moon and its craters and mountains, and what the Moon's features looked like from the surface. This artwork dates from 1880.
