Helmsley Arts Centre

1 Meeting House Court, Helmsley, YO62 5DW


Description

Chris Lintott (BBC Sky at Night) needs your help! Modern telescopes are producing more data than astronomers can cope with, and in this talk Lintott will explain how you can join more than a million volunteers in sorting out galaxies, hunting for planets around other stars...and counting penguins. A cosmic adventure, this talk will take you to the cutting edge of modern science while keeping feet firmly on the ground.

This event takes place as part of the National Parks Dark Sky Festival 2020 which runs from 14th February to 1st March.

- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.
