British retailer John Lewis has become well-known for its heartwarming Christmas commercials year after year, and this year, the tradition continues with Man on the Moon.

The 2015 Christmas advert tells the story of a young girl who looks up into a telescope and frequently observes a lonesome man living on the moon. She makes many spirited attempts to try and get in touch with him, but the distance is just too far for contact. Come Christmastime, the Man i the Moon receives a special present, a telescope, so that he can get a better look at the Earth and feel a little closer to the festivities.

From NASA announcing the discovery of water on Mars to the release of The Martian, there has been year-long interest in outer space and this commercial perfectly captures the spirit of the year.
