Adventures in Astronomy

Friday 22 March 2019
06:30 PM - 08:00 PM

Can you imagine Air New Zealand hiring you a jumbo and fly toward Antarctica for sight-seeing trip to the Southern Lights?  Or discovering 26 asteriods? Or flying on NASAs 747 flying observatory?

Dr Ian Griffin has, and with many more adventures under his astronomy belt we are pleased to welcome him to Northland. He will review both the public interest and scientific significance of his adventures, sharing some of the best images from his personal catalog of over 500,000 astrophotography pictures.

This is the first of our 2019 special events and we are very excited to start the year with such an inspiring speaker and topic. Dr Griffin is currently the CEO of Otago Museum and winner of the Prime Ministers Science Media Communication price in 2015.

Admission: Adults $10, Students $5.
Date: Friday March 22, 6:30pm  
Venue: Forum North
