This talk has been developed to compliment the newly fitted star plates as part of our ongoing lighting project in the Zulu Gallery, which takes inspiration from SDS Surveys and the Apache Point Observatory.
This talk is free to attend, with donations for teas and coffees.
We can’t wait to see you there!
or on the door on the night.
On a clear, dark night there are more than a thousand stars out there that we can see, without even having to use a telescope! To help us recognise and make sense of all these stars, we made patterns out of them on the sky: constellations. But what are these constellations, and how do they change over the course of a year? Does everyone on Earth see the same constellations? And how have for centuries the stars helped those at sea to navigate safely back home? That are some of the questions we will answer this evening.
