Comets with Professor John Brown

Professor John Brown OBE FRSE, Astronomer Royal for Scotland since 1995, will explore the history of comets, from the myths and legends of early observations, to today’s cutting edge science investigating their true nature and how they are helping us probe the sun and stars.

Glasgow Science Centre is proud to host the David Elder Lectures in partnership with the University of Strathclyde's Department of Physics.

About the Planetarium


The Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre has been upgraded to a spectacular, state-of-the-art, fulldome digital projection system (what a mouthful!). Our shows are live presenter-led or film based to take you on a journey through the solar system, into the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond, offering a truly out-of-this-world experience. Our spectacular full dome films display 360 degrees across the 15-metre hemispherical dome of the planetarium. It really is spellbinding stuff.
