Lecture/talk

Astronomy in the City

Astronomy in the City is a series of (free) public events, each packed with astrophysics; stargazing, and tea and biscuits. Evenings begin with talks covering astronomical highlights and recent research, and a question-and-answer session (for everything from beginner's questions about the night sky to the latest work done here in Birmingham). Afterwards, if the weather cooperates, we have observing with telescopes on campus with members of the University's AstroSoc and the Birmingham Astronomy Society. A lucky few will be taken out to the University's Observatory and our powerful telescope.

Each Astronomy in the City event features a talk on a different astrophysical topic connected to the research done at the University of Birmingham. This month we will have an update on the latest gravitational-wave discoveries from our LIGO team.

The first talk begins at 6:00 pm, in the Large Lecture Theatre of the Poynting Physics Building (R13 on the campus map) on the University's Edgbaston campus. The ballot for trips to the University Observatory close at 5:55 pm. For more details, including a preliminary program, please see the event website.
