PARTS of the moon have landed in Birstall for a special event.

Pieces of the moon brought back to earth by NASA were put on display at Oakwell Hall Country Park for a National Science Week event called It's All Relative.

Lunar fans were spaced out by the rare samples of rock and dust brought back during the late 1960s and early 1970s as well as chunks of meteorites.

All the exhibits have been loaned by the UK's Particle Physics and Astronomy Research Council.

The event also celebrates the scientific discoveries of Albert Einstein.

There were planetarium shows at a family event on Sunday, a solar slide show and a fun quiz to identify rock samples made out of chocolate.

Following the weekend event, the museum is hosting educational visits through National Science Week this week.
