Images of Starlight
Tuesday 2nd to Sunday 21st February
An exhibition of Astronomical Images captured by amateur astronomers from all over Ireland
will run from Tuesday 2nd - Sunday 21st February
This is the first major photographic exhibition by Irish Astroinomers.
The night sky has always fascinated people. Recent advances in digital photography have made the imaging
of its splendours ever more accessible. This exhibition is a celebration of its wonders and beauty.
It includes beautiful photographs
taken from back gardens and scenic landscapes throughout the country.
Organised with the Irish Astronomical Society and the Irish Federation of Astronomical Societies.
