Harrow Library Exhibition:
Harriot to Hubble
400 Years of Astronomy
To celebrate the International Year of Astronomy, we mounted a major exhibition which was displayed in Harrow, Hillingdon and, in part, at Syon House at Telescope 400. The exhibition celebrated the 400th anniversary of the first recorded telescopic lunar observation, by Thomas Harriot on 26 July 1609. You can view much of the exhibition here.
From time to time the society produces exhibition materials to celebrate some aspect of astronomy.
