I’m looking forward to presenting another astronomy talk for the 2019 Inverness Science Festival.  Talk details below:

Astronomer Stephen Mackintosh from Highland Astronomy will take you on a journey through space and time, looking at the massive stellar structures that make up the observable universe – Galaxies.

How did we discover them, how many are there and what do they tell us about the immense scale and dynamics of the universe?

Plus tips and advice on observing galaxies and other faint deep sky objects for yourself.

Time:  7pm – 8pm,  8th May 2019

Venue:  Main Lecture Theatre, UHI Campus
