Your eyes aren’t playing tricks, a giant moon installation by artist Luke Jerram is making its way around the world. Officially called “The Museum of the Moon,” it’s basically a 1:500,000 model of Earth’s natural satellite, complete with a detailed surface handcrafted using images from NASA.

“The big ball has already made it to countless festivals and art showcases, but it’s got plenty of tour dates still ahead. In fact, the exhibit was such a smashing success that the team behind the project now has multiple moons that show up at different locations at the same time, allowing more and more people to catch a glimpse. The rest of 2018 will see the moons spend much of their time in Europe, hopping around the UK, Germany, France, and Finland,” reports BGR.
