Ask an Astronomer

Ever had an astronomy question you've always wanted to know the answer to? Well now you can find out here by Asking an Astronomer!


Although we are a research department, sometimes we can help with visits to and by schools. Please note that we only have a finite availability (of staff time and/or availability of lecture theatre) for such events.


We might be host an early evening visit for your cub/brownie/scout/guide pack. Please note that we shall not begin arranging visits for next season till mid-August (and will then give priority for those who missed out on a visit last year) - apologies for any inconvenience.
