Comets, Signposts in History

This event has finished. 7 December 2013, 2pm

Join Andrew Lound and the Swansea Astronomical Christmas Lecture as the Comet Ison graces our November and December night skies.

In times past our ancestors viewed comets as harbingers of doom. In modern times, we tend to regard them as exciting, fascinating, and sometimes beautiful objects giving us a sense of awe. Maybe the truth is somewhere in between.
