The Pleiades are depicted in the 3500-year-old Nebra sky disc, the Seven Sisters in Greek mythology, and more recently ‘seven for the seven stars in the sky’ in the children’s counting song.
Remembering where the constellations are and how to recognise them comes with practice. Mythological stories can help.
Pete Williamson FRAS is a renowned observer and photographer of the sun and the stars. He will be guiding us around the night sky, what to see, where it is, and how best to see it.
The evening starts with homemade soup, included in the price. Booking required.
