Introduction to the Solar System


This presentation looks at our own Solar System and its position within the Milky Way Galaxy. We look at how it was formed, how celestial bodies are arranged and try to get our heads around the distances involved!! We cover the thoughts and beliefs of historical astronomers and then taking each planet in turn, we scroll through our "near" neighbours briefly looking at each of them. We finally conclude with a look at some of Pete Richardson's planetary and deep sky images taken from here in Somerset.

Duration: Approximately 1 Hour

Cost for presentations start at £25
