Astronomers use the whole electromagnetic spectrum to investigate the universe. Using visible, infra-red and ultra-voilet light we'll show how there is more to star light than meets the eye!

Using spectroscopes, gas discharge tubes, ultraviolet light and infrared cameras, this show demonstrates some of the ways we can observe and interpret starlight and investigate the universe.
