Telescope record-breaking attempt

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of people tried to make the Guinness Book of World Records this weekend by staring into space from Mexico.

Almost 3,000 individuals peered through telescopes pointed at the moon. That broke the previous record. In total 2,978 people took part in the event.

The previous record for telescopes pointed in the same location was established in 2011.
