Event description

Description

People have been looking up at the night sky, the Moon and Sun for eternity, but it’s only in the past 400 years or so that telescopes have been used to study them. They have advanced our knowledge and understanding of objects that have inspired poets and artist. Even today, artists are still being inspired, notably Katie Paterson’s ‘Totality’ and Luke Jerram’s ‘Museum of the Moon’. Planetarium Officer Colin Hutcheson will discuss how our scientific discoveries have allowed artworks such as these to be made, and what we now know about both the Sun and the Moon – the most obvious members of the solar system.
