Due to unforeseen circumstances the talk by Carolyn Kennett on Uranus and Neptune has to be postponed


The event will continue but with a new talk by Dr D Brown on The Heritage of the Night Sky


Heritage can take on many shapes and forms. We are mostly familiar with monuments or landscapes connecting to our heritage. However, humans have always valued the sky and been influenced by its every changing appearance.

This month will feature Dr Daniel Brown (NTU) and his talk on The Heritage of the Night Sky. A talk that guides us through how we explore and understand our heritage and are able to connect it to the night sky. He gives examples that include Stonehenge but also many sites in the Pak District. It also explores the impact of light pollution and how this removes part of our heritage, calling us all to action. Finally, it also illustrates the modern trend of pollution of the sky through excess satellites for example related to Star Link.
