DIAS Dunsink Observatory Open night
17th October 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
As part of the Dublin Festival of History, join us at Dunsink for a night-long celebration of space — from Ireland’s rich and colourful history of exploring the universe, to our role in making future discoveries beyond our atmosphere. Throughout the night we’ll have talks, conversation, demonstrations and, weather permitting, some stargazing — all in the historic surroundings of Dunsink Observatory. Meet the scientists at the Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies (DIAS) who are expanding our understanding of the universe, the Dunsink team who care for the history and future of the observatory, and the community of astronomers and space fans who help make Dunsink one of the most important sites for space exploration in Ireland.
Donations to support the running of community outreach events at Dunsink Observatory are very welcome.
