Event description
A journey along the Milky Way, with tales from around the world and a touch of science.

About this Event

If you've travelled somewhere dark enough, you might have noticed a ribbon of light stretching across the sky: our galaxy, the Milky Way. Some say it's the godess Hera's milk, the milk she refused the infant Hercules, her husband's illegitimate child. For others, it's a The Great River in the Sky. In Far Eastern lore it separates the cowherd from the spinning princess. In Australia, it was created by a hero's beautiful song and the dark shapes within it tell the story of the Great Emu. It is also the flight path of another bird, Cygnus the Swan, along which departed souls are said to travel.

Join us for an hour's journey along the Milky Way, with a mix of astronomy and tales from different cultural perspectives, and soulful music by Fallen Butnotdown - you can enjoy his tracks on Spotify, Apple Music, Soundcloud.

Watch this event from the comfort of your own home via the online platform Zoom. A link will be sent closer to the date.

For a taste of what is to come, you can listen to my podcast: Tales of a Starry Night.
