I’ll be giving a talk on Tuesday 5th January 2021 for the Highlands Astronomical Society on the Astronomy of Ancient Monuments. If you’d like to hear the talk live please get in touch with the HAS secretary here. The talk will also be distributed on youtube a few days after the session and I’ll post the links up then.
In view of recent developments my contribution to this years Inverness Science Festival will be a free live streamed talk. Please visit my Highland Astronomy facebook page for more details:
Astronomer Stephen Mackintosh will take you back in time to discover how our distant ancestors used the Sun, Moon and stars to track the progress of time and the seasons. Looking at ancient monuments connected to the night sky, we’ll go on a tour of Egypt, Central America, southern England and back home to Scotland where some of the finest concentrations of neolithic structures exist anywhere in Europe, not least the wonderful Clava Cairns. Plus advice on sky watching and naked eye observing you can put into practice yourself.
