Lighting Up The Sky

Published: 06 Oct 2010

The Northern Night sky is beautiful and can be seen so plainly in Caithness on a clear night. If you have never experienced the clear dark blue skies sparkling with stars, comets and the Aurora Borealis then you now have an ideal chance to see this spectacular array of lights.

Genuine Images of the spacey lights will be projected against the white walls of T3/UK at Janetstown and will be accompanied by a text written by local astronomer, Jim Johnston and with a poetic response to the images by Catriona Lexy Campbell.

The projections will take place on Saturday 9th October and Wednesday 13th October starting at 10.30pm and is expected to last about an hour.

Warm clothes are recommended and those attending are encouraged to bring a torch. Parking is available on site, however numbers are limited and transport will be provided from provided departing from St Peters Church and St Andrews Church at 1030pm and returning after the event.
