Sark Astronomy Society is holding their third Starfest over the weekend of 15th and 16th September. Guest of honour will be Dr Marek Kukula, the Public Astronomer from the Royal Observatory Greenwich. Marek will be the astronomer in residence at Stocks Hotel over the weekend and will be giving a talk called ‘Black holes. Do they really exist?’ Graduate Kevin Murphy will be showing his film, ‘In Search of Dark Skies’ that was partly filmed here in Sark and recently gained him a degree in Marine and Natural History Photography from Falmouth University. If cloudy skies spoil the view of the real stars then head along to the Sark Visitor Centre where winning entries from the Astronomy Photographer of the Year Competition will be on display along with images of Sark’s stunning night sky. Now in its fourth year, the competition and related exhibition continues to showcase some incredible images from amateur astrophotographers all around the world. The exhibition is a selection of winning and highly commended photographs from the past competitions revealing beautiful objects from within our solar system and far into deep space. The exhibition runs from 1st September to 2nd November and entry is free.
