I met Chris Lintott from The Sky at Night yesterday! He was giving a lecture in York and we (York Astronomical Society) were asked to bring our telescopes to the event. There was also an exhibition and a cosmodome, but I didn’t get to have a good look at those. The lecture was really interesting; he talked about ongoing research into galaxies, exoplanets and Voorwerps, and also projects like Galaxy Zoo. Afterwards I got to chat to quite a few people about my telescope and astronomy in general.
If anyone’s wondering, I’m the one stood awkwardly on the left and in the middle is my friend Conna. :)
