Astronomy lectures

As part of our 2018 summer programme Sensing Memory, Dubai Astronomy Group are hosting two lectures that explore celestial bodies, ancestral memory, and our planet's past.  

Stories in the sky

Hasan Ahmad Al Hariri, head of Dubai Astronomy Group, will share stories about the night sky that have been passed down through generations of people who used the stars to navigate their everyday lives. Hear the tales told by Greek and Arab civilisations and learn how ancient peoples used these as memory tools.
