Searching for Life

30 October 2018

7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Does ET really exist? Is there intelligent life out there and if so how will we ever get in contact? Join astronomer Richard Darn on a colourful trip through the cosmos to find answers to this time-less conundrum.

We will discover how other planets have been detected around distant stars that might harbour life and how scientists have not yet given up of finding other organisms in our very own solar system on exotic worlds such Europa, one of Jupiter’s icy moons. Perhaps life is very rare and we are an amazing fluke of nature!

After looking at both sides of the argument we will (weather permitting) enjoy stunning views of the starry night sky with powerful telescopes and binoculars. Wrap up warm and bring a red light torch (if you have one). The evening is perfect for novices and children over eight years old.

This event is part of the North Pennines Stargazing Festival running from 20 October to 4 November 2018 – www.NorthPenninesStarFest.org.uk
