At the end of the night we asked our audience members to share with us stories, thoughts and memories they had of star gazing and the night sky as we begin to develop ideas for a new project on astronomy.
What is your earliest memory of star gazing?
How did/does it make you feel?
How does the night sky look different when you’re away from home – are you from a city or the countryside?
What do you think about when you look up at the stars?
We’d love to hear from you too (just a few thoughts/observations, not a short essay) – you can email us at email@example.com to let us know if you’d like to speak at one of our events or, alternatively, email us your thoughts. We’ll record these segments for future use in our research on this new project and include some of the stories shared in our podcast of the night.
