History of Astronomy.

This Presentation will tell about the History of Astronomy. From the beginning of civilisation man has tried to make sense of the tiny, moving lights in the sky. It tells about the early attempts the Babylonians made to document the sky. Of the Greeks, who separated Astronomy from Astrology. The Arabs and their improvements to the star catalogue, and finally, about the modern day European astronomers.

The Book of Fixed Stars


Jupiter and its moons.

An introduction to the largest planet in our Solar System, including details on its four largest moons and so much more.

The presentation about Jupiter starts from the time of the Ancients when the second brightest object in the night sky was first noticed. It continues with the discovery of Jupiter's four largest Moons and the controversy this caused. It tells about the huge size of Jupiter and the terrifying storms that rage in its sky, about the four Galilean Moons, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto, about Jupiter's rings, and the recent impact of Shoemaker-Levy 9 in 1993 into Jupiter. It continues with the missions to and beyond the Jovian system by NASA and the planned ESA JUICE mission. The story finally ends with some examples of what you could see if you looked for Jupiter yourself today.This presentation has many detailed colour pictures taken by space craft orbiting Jupiter and its moons.

Asteroid 2012 DA14

This presentation starts with two short film clips to show the difference between fact and fiction. The First is a trailer from the film Deep Impact. The second is a short Introductory Film By NASA about 2012 DA14. This is followed by What a Near Earth Object is, the Asteroid 2012 DA14's discovery and the Asteroid's relocation as it approaches Earth in February 2013. The presentation covers the asteroid's Orbit, Physical Size, Composition, and a similar very near miss in 1908. We also talk about the NASA Risk Impact Assessment, what would happen if 2012 DA14 hit the Earth, the possibility of 2012 DA14 hitting the Moon or a man-made Satellite, the Asteroid's approach path and a short animated film of the Asteroid 2012 DA14. Finally, will the Asteroid be visible, when will it be back, and the conclusion.
