Astronomy enquiries

Unfortunately, the astronomers at the Royal Observatory Greenwich are unable to accept general astronomical queries such as identifying unexplained or unusual astronomical phenomena by email, telephone or in writing. They are also unable to provide comment on unsolicited scientific papers or theses. Academic queries should be sent to a refereed journal.

During your visit to Royal Observatory Greenwich or the Peter Harrison Planetarium our astronomers, Observatory Explainers and volunteers are more than happy to answer your astronomy queries. Our astronomers are available to take questions between planetarium shows, and throughout the year we have a programme of live science and astronomy demonstrations.

If you would like to learn even more about astronomy the Royal Observatory runs a wide range of astronomy courses which are suitable for a range of individuals and experience.
