Our Dark Skies Discovery Day begins with a whistle stop tour of the Universe, from the Big Bang to the place we call home and everything in between, hosted by Sheona Urquhart of the Open University.
Sheona is an expert on the evolution of galaxies, and was recently a guest on the Hebridean Dark Skies Festival’s Campfire Conversations podcast, talking about studying distant galaxies from Hawaii, making TV with Brian Cox, and why astronomers often make good musicians.
Dark Skies Discovery Day is a whole day of Hebridean Dark Skies Festival events in partnership with Lews Castle College UHI and the Institution of Engineering and Technology. Day tickets are available for just £15/£13.
The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is supported by Caledonian MacBrayne, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Culture and Business Fund Scotland. We would also like to thank our event partners, Calanais Visitor Centre, Stornoway Astronomical Society, Gallan Head Community Trust, and Lews Castle College UHI , as well as Cala Hotels, Outer Hebrides Tourism, and VisitScotland.
