Explore the Universe in a new dimension

Join us on 22nd April 2021 for a special Worldwide AstroFest online event in which Dr Brian May, founder of the modern-day London Stereoscopic Company, will explain how stereo imaging brings a new dimension to our exploration of the Universe. He will explore his latest astro-stereoscopic books and reveal some new stereos from his work with current NASA missions, including the Perseverance Mars rover.

Your virtual conference ticket is just £10, provides live access to the presentation and gives you the opportunity to pose questions to Brian. The presentation will get underway at 7:30pm BST (1830 GMT) on 22nd April and a replay will be available later.

This presentation is best experienced using one of Brian’s OWL Stereoscopic Viewers to bring the visuals to life in fantastic 3-D. Astronomy Now has teamed up with the London Stereoscopic Company to offer great discounts if you don’t already have a viewer.
