‘Second Moon’ by Katie Paterson now on a journey around the Earth

'Second Moon' is a project by Katie Paterson that tracks the cyclical journey of a small fragment of the moon as it circles the Earth, via air freight courier, on a man made commercial orbit. The moon fragments launched from the British Science Festival in Newcastle upon Tyne on the 8th September, on a year long journey from September 2013 to August 2014. This one year journey will see the parcel moving in an anti clockwise direction across the UK, China, Australia and the USA. Orbiting at approximately twice the speed of our Moon, over one year Second Moon will orbit the Earth 30 times.
