NIGHT SKY: NAOMI ARNOLD
SUNDAY 17 MAY – 11.45-12.45PM
HERALD THEATRE, AOTEA CENTRE
What connection to a greater, wilder, yet orderly power is lost when the stars blink out and our attention is directed downward, at ourselves? Asks Naomi Arnold, author of Southern Nights: The Story of New Zealand’s Night Sky from the Southern Lights to the Milky Way. As increasing satellite activity and light pollution threaten to dim the cosmos, Arnold showcases our “family of light” in a sparkling illustrated talk – the Southern Cross; the Magellanic Clouds; Omega Centauri – and drawing from the three strands in her book discusses the scientific, social and cultural stories of astronomy in NZ. Sit back and enjoy a glimpse into the huge treasure that’s in our skies.
