A Ramble through the Solar System – Presented by Martin Lunn

Price: £6.48

Event description

In the red Brick Auditorium

Let’s take a journey to explore our local star, the Sun, together with the eight planets of the solar system; some known to astronomers living thousands of years ago and others discovered more recently. We will learn about their moons together with the smaller bodies; the dwarf planets, asteroids, comets and meteors that complete our fascinating solar system.

Martin Lunn – From 1989 until 2011 Martin was Curator of Astronomy at the Yorkshire Museum in York, and in 1998 he was presented with an MBE for services to astronomy and education. He is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and has served a term on their council.
