What is Light? - 9th European Symposium for the Protection of the Night Sky

A PUBLIC LECTURE BY LEO ENRIGHT

Leo Enright, a broadcaster on Space Exploration and Science, explores the history of Ireland’s sometimes tenuous connection with luminosity – while naming and shaming some modern big wicks. He will focus on the importance of continuing public access to dark skies, especially during the present ‘Golden Age’ of astronomy, whilst noting that historically Ireland has sometimes been defined by the absence of light – as why else would the Romans have called it Hibernia?

Speaker: Leo Enright

Date: Wednesday 16 September 2009, 7pm
Venue: Academy House, 19 Dawson Street, Dublin 2

Admission is free but places are strictly limited. Advance registration is required.

The public lecture is being given as part of the 9th European Symposium for the Protection of the Night Sky that takes place from 17 – 19 September 2009 in the Market Place Theatre, Armagh. More info:
