Summer Nights and Deep Space

Friday 10th June, 7:30-9:30pm

A highly illustrated talk covering recent events in the news, special anniversaries and an account of what can be seen in the night sky in the immediate future. Learn with fun facts, historical insights and book reviews in this presentation by Laurence Anslow FRAS, alongside a planetarium experience. Advice can also be given on the purchase of telescopes. Come along with your questions and enjoy a Starlight Odyssey!

This month we see what the summer months have to offer as we peer into space beyond our Solar System, together with recent findings about the centre of our own Milky Way galaxy and beyond!

The Starlight Odyssey Sessions give you all this and more:

  • 2-hour presentation
  • Planetarium session
  • Night sky update
  • Astronomy news
  • Example equipment and books
  • Refreshments included
  • Questions and discussion welcome

As a former teacher and amateur astronomer, Laurence Anslow is uniquely placed to explain difficult concepts and make the world of astronomy accessible to everyone. With something for the novice and experienced stargazer alike, Starlight Odyssey is not to be missed!

Each month we cover a new topic, exploring everything from historical discoveries, to present-day research and possibilities for the future. Past shows include Return to the Moon and Destination Mars. Plus get all the latest astronomy news in one informal and easy to understand evening!

Presented by Laurence Anslow, a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, and Chloe Elliott, a former Winston Astronomy student and Astrophysics graduate of the University of Exeter.

We look forward to meeting you for two hours of all things cosmic!
