Description

Join Royal Astronomer Professor John C Brown OBE for an evening of Planetarium star gazing and fine dining which is a ‘must go to’ for keen enthusiasts and interested star gazers!

After a visit to the Planetarium and a trip around the Galaxy, you will be taken to Gate 63, the College’s renowned training restaurant, where, following a Cosmic Cocktail and a delicious two course buffet, Professor Brown will entertain you with his lively and highly entertaining presentation ‘Oor Big Braw Cosmos’.

In ‘Oor Big Braw Cosmos' he explores the beauty of the universe and its workings via a cocktail of science and science history, poetry and superb photo and art images, many from Scottish amateurs.

The evening will commence at 6pm - please arrive at 5.45pm and make your way to our renowned Gate 63 Restaurant at the Gallowgate entrance where you can leave any personal belongings and wine (this event is bring your own bottle).

Professor Brown was appointed by the Queen as the 10th Astronomer Royal for Scotland in 1995, a post created in 1834. This title is an honorary one which he mainly uses to promote astronomy in the public eye and in education, through lectures and planetarium shows throughout the UK.

He has been involved, as adviser and/or giving debut shows, in several of the new planetaria recently opened in the UK, including Glasgow Science Centre’s superb Zeiss Starmaster, Birmingham’s Thinktank, Newcastle’s Centre for Life, and for a while, the Royal Observatory, Greenwich.
