Dark skies let us see some of the glories of the night sky, but even on the best, darkest night, much is hidden from us by kinds of "light" that our eyes have never evolved to see. So, how are we exploring this invisible universe, and what can we learn from it?
Andy Newsam is Professor of Astronomy Education and Engagement at Liverpool John Moores University and Director of the National Schools' Observatory. His varied roles combine work with schools with research, undergraduate teaching, running Distance Learning courses, and public engagement. All of this is fun, and all of it lets him play with big telescopes.
Andy's presentation is suitable for all, including younger astronomers.
This event takes place as part of the National Parks Virtual Dark Skies Festival 2021, an annual celebration of the wonderful dark skies above the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors International Dark Sky Reserves.
Note that this online presentation can also be viewed LIVE and for FREE via the Go Stargazing public Facebook page (no Facebook login is required - you may need to refresh the page to see the "Watch live" button).
