A FREE, yes I did say FREE whole day of practical astronomy.
What’s not to like?
The Practical Astronomy Show brings a selection of leading astronomy businesses, organisations and educational institutions together under one roof, for one day.
Astronomy products and services will be available for purchase from various stands.
Organisations involved in astronomy education, outreach and tourism will be available to meet and greet the general public.
I will have a small stand at the show.
As well as selling my books and promoting presentations and planetarium, I will have lots of hands-on fun for visitors as well.
This will, of course include the ever popular whiff and feel of comet 67P and some new 3D astronomical images.
I will also be promoting all the local astronomical societies in my area.
If your society would like me to hand out some leaflets, please let me have them.
A list of the main attending vendors is at the bottom of this page.
As well as the trade stands displaying lots of astronomy goodies, there are a number of free talks as well:
- Dr Paul Abel – UK Visual Astronomer.
- Dr Robin Glover – Author of SharpCap PRO image capture software.
- Gary Palmer – UK Astrophotographer.
- Damien Peach – UK Astrophotographer.
- Niels Haagh – designer of the unique Panther mount.
