Carding Mill Valley
Carding Mill, Church Stretton, SY6
The Crab nebula got its name because it looked a bit Crab-like when it was sketched in 1840. It is the remnant of a star that went with a Bang (a Supernova, probably in 1054). Stuff gets left behind too, like Black Holes. Other stars die when they run out of fuel, collapse to white dwarfs then gradually fade away – is anything left?
Find out with astronomer and broadcaster Pete Williamson. There will also be the opportunity for star gazing (weather permitting).
Ticket price includes includes soup and a roll!
