Plate IV of Thomas Heath's Popular Astronomy presents the moon in seven phases. At center is a large depiction of a full moon from a drawing in Bode's Jahrbuch from 1825. In the top corners are a crating of the Crater Copernicus by Secchi, and a photograph of the moon by M.M. Loewy and Puiseun.

This chromolithograph print was one of twenty-one plates published in Thomas Heath's 1903 edition of Popular Astronomy. The plates were produced by W & A.K.

The prints produced for the Popular Astronomy offer a unique view of our understanding of the Universe at the turn of the 20th Century.
