‘Heavens Above’ is an Astrophotography exhibition presented by The Irish Astronomical Association. All are welcome to the launch on Mon 3rd July 1.30-3.30pm in the Carnegie Library - Hamilton Road, Bangor. The exhibition is open until 29th July.
This is a free family event with Tea & Coffee, an incredible Meteorite display, solar viewing with telescopes, weather permitting, talks by Prof Stephen Smartt from QUB, Dr Mike Simms from the Ulster Museum and Paul Evans from the IAA.
All 40 images on display have been taken by our members.
The exhibition runs until 29th July 2017 and has previously been staged at a number of high profile venues with huge popular acclaim, including the Linenhall Library, Belfast, the Lisburn Island Arts Centre, the Clotworthy House gallery, Antrim and the St Patrick Centre, Downpatrick. The meteorites displayed are an exciting new addition to the exhibition originating from asteroids, the Moon and even Mars before they make a fiery landing on our own planet Earth. These meteorites are both rare and valuable and this is your chance to get up-close with these remnants from the solar system’s other worldly bodies.
This piece concerning the Meteorites on display was written by Dr Mike Simms of the Ulster Museum....
