Leeds Light Night
During Leeds Light Night, a 2-day festival, Leeds city centre will come alive with spectacular large-scale light projections, exhibitions, installations, film, dance, music and street performances. In 2015 members of the astrophysics group where on hand to help out in Leeds cathedral. Against the backdrop of an impressive projection of the sun using images from NASAs Solar Dynamic Observatory, astrophysicists chatted to the public and answered quesions about star formation, astronomy and the Sun.
