The Sky at Night
Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock
Saturday 25 May | 7pm
£15 | Friends £13.50 | Age 13+

The Moon has fascinated humankind since the beginning of history - but far from being a mere rock out in space, it has phenomenal power over the earth, creating great waves, dictating the length of the day and perhaps even playing a role in the creation of life on Earth. It is certainly a key player in the story of our fragile planet, but how well do we know our closest neighbour?


Co-presenter of The Sky at Night, Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock takes readers on a journey through the Moon's past, present and ultimate future.


This talk will include a book signing.
