Aluna’s concept is universal and its form and principles can be situated anywhere on Earth. Alunatime is global - wherever you are watching the Moon, half the planet is able to watch it with you.

A Greenwich Prime Meridian Location
Aluna's Team are in discussions regarding an exciting location on the Greenwich Peninsula foreshore, next to The O2 Millennium Dome, an historic Drawdock, the proposed AEG Hotel and Peninsula Quays developments. Located here, Aluna will be almost exactly where the Meridian bisects the Greenwich Peninsula, and will be directly overlooked by the towers at Canary Wharf.

Luan Dun, City of The Moon
London, says Francis Crossley, is "Luan-dun", Celtic for "City of the Moon", and tradition says there was once a temple of Diana (the Moon) where St. Paul's now stands. Greenwich he derives from "Grian-wich", Celtic for "City of the Sun". (Dictionary of Phrase and Fable 1898)

Our moon helped all the world's great navigators find their way.
