To celebrate the publication of the seventh and eighth books in our Royal Observatory Illuminates series, we're exploring moons and aurorae.

Royal Observatory astronomer Anna Ross takes us across the Universe to discover moons of all shapes and sizes, and fellow astronomer Bryony Lanigan explains the beautiful and elusive aurorae.

The event will be followed by a Q&A where you can put your questions to the authors, and there will also be an opportunity to get your copies of the books signed.
