Images have been the most inspirational way to communicate astronomy to the general public. Since several years a highly popular photo-competition is held by the Royal Observatory Greenwich (ROG) and INSIGHT to select the best astronomy images of the year.
Dr M Kukula (Public Astronomer - ROG) will present the competition and the winners of this year's 2017 competition. We will hear about how difficult this process is and some background on this year's winners.
Booking is required for this event. While attending, you consent to filming, photography, and sound recording – which may include you as a member of the audience – and its use in publication or advertising distribution, either printed or online, without payment or copyright.
The event will start at 8 pm with Dr M Kukula's talk INSIGHT Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2017. Refreshments will be offered from 7.45 pm in the CELS foyer. Afterwards, visitors will get a tour of the NTU observatory and the chance to see interesting objects in the autumn sky using the observatory's telescopes, small telescopes and binoculars, if the weather allows it.
