This is the third of 5 lectures by Dr. Adrian Jannetta which will cover everything in the universe!

This course, which is aimed at beginners to astronomy, will be a mix of practical advice and background theory. If you can't attend all the lectures, you can book individual lectures, which are listed separately, for £7.
