Do you have a burning question about black holes? Do you want to know more about interstellar comets or exoplanets? A panel of world-leading astronomers from Queen’s University Belfast, in conjunction with NI SciFest 2020, will be available to answer your questions during this 1 hour panel, starting at 7pm on February 22, 2020 in the Larmor Lecture Theatre, Physics Building, next door to the Whitla Hall on Queen’s University’s main campus. Doors open at 6:30pm .
Weather permitting, from 8pm - 10pm, a Star Watch will be held in front of the Lanyon Building to give everyone the opportunity to look at stars, galaxies and nebulae. An array of telescopes will be set up members of the Astrophysics Research Centre at Queen’s University Belfast andthe Irish Astronomical Association. The Star Watch will be an outdoor event, and if it is clear it will be cold, so please dress warmly.
These events are free, but due to limited seating, registration is required for the Astronomy Question Time. The telescope viewing (weather permitting) is open to anyone and does not require any prior registration.
Also check out our day-time event, Queen's Astronomy Day, from 11am to 4pm in the Lanyon Building at Queen's University.
