DIAS Dunsink Observatory

A Night Among the Stars


Join us for a night among the stars and expand your mind with great cosmic questions from the astronomers of DIAS Dunsink Observatory! Dunsink is Ireland’s oldest astronomical observatory and was once the home of one of Ireland’s greatest mathematicians, Sir William Rowan Hamilton. Nowadays, DIAS astrophysicists study explosions on the Sun, search for new stars and planets, and search the universe for exotic astronomical objects. The programme includes a virtual tour of the 18th-century observatory and the Victorian engineering of the South Telescope built by Grubb of Dublin. There will also be ‘light-speed’ talks from leading astrophysicists and a fun Q&A session. A booking link will be made available shortly. We hope you will enjoy – it is going to be out of this world!
