Astronomy courses

Lightning courses are short, one-day courses that allow you to delve deeper on a topic in astronomy, led by a Royal Observatory astronomer.

There are a range of topics covered by these courses, from how to take photos of the night sky to life on alien worlds to understanding Einstein’s theories of relativity. The courses offer an introduction into different subjects in astronomy and no prior knowledge of astronomy is needed.
