Start time: 20:00

Location: Seething Observatory

Host: Chris Greenfield

Where's The Flux with Mark Turner?

In the 20 or so years since the first discovery of extra solar planets, learn how our quest to find planets like the Earth has lead to the most unexpected of discoveries! 

This weekend is part of the 100 Hours of Astronomy initiative in partnership with the International Astronomical Union.


Doors open at 7:30 with talks starting at 8:00, unless the room fills up earlier, in which case the talk will start sooner and depending on numbers could be repeated. Admission is Adults £3.00 Adult members £2.00 All Children £1.50,

Teas and coffee are available at the end of the talk and there will be a chance to observe through the telescopes, if the skies are clear. Talks vary in length but generally last approximately 40 minutes and are aimed at those with a general interest in astronomy. Children are welcome (recommend from about 8 years upwards)

This event is likely to be very popular, so we'd suggest that you purchase tickets in advance to ensure entry.
