National Astronomy Week 2020 - Mars Encounter

Hello fellow night sky watchers! 

The National Astronomy Week 2020 - Mars Encounter will be conducting nine days of activites from the 14th to the 22nd of November virtually. We will have Mars activities for kids in the morning hosted by UK science centres and education and outreach professionals to edutain your kids with astronomy and space science from 11am to 12pm. 

Come and join us in the evenings too, to have a look at Mars for yourself! From 6pm to 7pm we have a line-up of speakers presenting on a variety of Mars topics from life, water, weather, climate, geology, mythology to robots, humans, science-fiction and even a careers day on Mars! At 8pm we will offer remote observations from practical astronomers located around the UK, and beyond. We've designed this week+ of events to allow us to view Mars safely from our homes. We hope you will join us! 

We will have the full schedule posted shortly followed by a registration link for you to join us virtually from your homes. Watch this space!
