Sir Norman Lockyer - a talk by Mike Frost

The story of an eminent Victorian astronomer - the co-discoverer of helium, founder of the journal Nature, and pioneer of archaeo-astronomy. A glimpse at the extraordinary world of Victorian eclipse chasers - shipwrecks, sieges and escapes by hot-air balloon. And the story of Lockyer's own observatory in Sidmouth, open to this day

Next talk Jeremiah Horrocks - A Very Curious Astronomer
