The next meeting of Kernow Astronomers is on Thursday 20, June at the Summercourt Memorial Hall. Gather at 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start.

Supernovas are the explosions that happen when a star runs out of enough fuel to support it against its own crushing gravity. When stars explode they are some of the brightest and most violent astronomical events known. In tonights talk Nigel will be exploring the different types of supernovae and how they are useful to astronomers and to models of how the universe works. The clouds of gas and dust that are produced make for some beautiful objects to image and also give rise to the elements that make life possible.

Why not come along and find out more.
