Ramsgate Planetarium

Our first ever event was inspired by the artist, Turner, having exclaimed "The skies over Thanet are the loveliest in all Europe!" He was right! People of all ages came to listen to physicists from the University of Kent deliver star shows in an inflatable planetarium in Ramsgate Town Centre. Afterwards we dished out silver deely-boppers so that the streets would be filled with space visitors and everyone was given a cardboard planisphere to take away and identify the constellations with friends and family. People wrote a wish upon a star and these were displayed in the high street for several weeks afterwards, to create Ramsgate's own constellation and a heartfelt reminder of the event.
