Full course description

UCC and Skellig CRI are delighted to offer this six-week short course in Astronomy which aims to provide participants with a working knowledge of the night sky and equip them with some of the skills they would need to become a Star Gazing Guide. The course introduces astronomy with lectures by Prof. Paul Callanan, UCC, from an observational viewpoint, while the connection between archaeology and astronomy will be discussed by local archaeologist Aoibheann Lambe. There will be a particular focus also within the course on astro-tourism and the opportunities within the Dark Sky Reserve.
