Dark Skies: Exploring the Dynamic Universe - Sold Out
Event Type: Event for all
Join Professor Andy Newsam on the evening of Saturday 15th February as part of the 2020 Dark Skies Festival, organised by the North York Moors National Park.

Andy is Professor of Astronomy Education at Liverpool John Moores University and Director of the National Schools' Observatory. His work combines research, education and sharing astronomy with the public, and is never happier than when playing with giant telescopes.

The Universe is a dynamic, ever-changing place full of extremes - from Black Holes to asteroids, massive exploding stars to elusive distant planets. Recent developments in robotic technology have allowed astronomers to build high-tech telescopes that allow them to observe changes in the universe on timescales from seconds to years, all without leaving comfort of their homes or offices. So, how are astronomers using these new methods to explore the universe? And how can you help?


Your ticket includes access to the event, and also a drink upon arrival.
