Once in a Blue Moon

7 November 2017 18:45-20:00, Preston, United Kingdom

Speaker: Prof. Don Kurtz of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).
Topic: The sky has many beautiful phenomena caused by the interaction of light with the air: blue skies, red sunsets, rainbows, glories, haloes, green flashes, sun dogs and blue moons. We will see pictures of these and learn where to see them and how they are formed. We will also see and learn about a blue sky on Saturn, murky sunsets on Mars, the black skies of many moons, and speculations about the skies on some of the more than 5000 exoplanets that have been discovered in recent years.
