William Herschel and the Universe – A Documentary Film by George Sibley

William Herschel, a 42 year old musician and amateur astronomer, discovered the first “new” planet in history in 1781. His telescopes, observations and theories transformed what was the clockwork universe imagined by Isaac Newton into the evolutionary and wonder-filled cosmos we know today. This is the story of how modern astronomy took shape under the pre-industrial skies of the 18th century.

Join us on June 24, 2022 for an exclusive chance to view this film with the filmmaker himself! George will be taking questions after the film, so don’t miss out.

Free with purchase of a general admission ticket.
