Reach for the stars at Carrickfergus Museum

1 Mins read

Carrickfergus Museum is delighted to welcome back the team from Armagh Planetarium and Observatory to run Navigation by the Stars.

The event, which will explore how sailors found their way across the high seas before modern technology, is being held on Thursday 20 February at 7pm.

Why not join the scientists who will be bringing a number of telescopes for handling?

This fascinating hands on talk compliments the Museum’s exhibition, Landings: Conquest and Commerce which features stunning handcrafted models of the HMY Mary and HMY Henrietta, the ships that brought King William III to Carrickfergus in 1690.

This is the second time the Armagh Planetarium and Observatory have worked with the museum.

In 2017 they loaned a number of incredible scientific instruments for a stunning photographic exhibition, Heaves Above.

The exhibition also included a ‘Star Dome’ event – an inflatable planetarium allowing people to explore the night sky!

The event is organised as part of the Northern Ireland Science Festival which aims to provide a stimulating and wide range of events focusing on the wonders of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
