The Astronomy Section of La Société Guernesiaise invites you to a lecture by Paul Anthony Wilson of the University of Exeter on ‘Exoplanets and their atmospheres’ beginning at 7.30 pm on Friday, 23 November 2012 at Frossard Lecture theatre, Candie Gardens.  The lecture is free.

The discovery of planets around other stars over the last two decades has been nothing short of an astronomical fairy tale.  New discoveries of these exotic worlds are being made at a staggering rate.

Paul Anthony Wilson explains how we find these alien worlds and how we are able to characterise these bodies, which are so far away.
