Man in the moon greetings card launch


To celebrate tonight's International Observe the Moon Night, we are stardust is launching a new Man in the moon greetings card to add to the astronomy collection.

The story behind the man in the moon greetings card

As I was drawing my moon illustration I started to see the "face" of the moon appear as I sketched. It made me think of the phrase "the man in the moon is made of cheese". The more I thought about the phrase, the more it irritated me. I wanted to know what the man in the moon was actually made of. A bit of research on the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum website told me the much more interesting reality, and a new we are stardust card was born!

It's perfect for space lovers who enjoy a humorous fact. Let the stargazer in your life know you're thinking of them with the new Man in the moon greetings card:

There are events all over the world you can join.
