Join us on a journey that begins with the history of the social and cultural impact of the Northern Lights through to our scientific understanding of the Aurora today. Learn how they are created, how to find them, which apps to use and some hints and tips on how to photograph them. If we get clear skies, enjoy stargazing sessions to spot Venus and the moon before and after the talk.
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.
- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
