Northumberland Astronomical Society’s Dr Adrian Jannetta gives the low-down on dangers that could potentially threaten our world. Featuring solar flares, asteroids, supernovas, gamma ray bursts and blackholes!
Weather permitting, we’ll round the evening off with stargazing and the chance to look through a selection of telescopes. The event is suitable for families but be aware that the car park will be very dark so children must be accompanied at all times.
This is a free event however prior registration is required.
