The legend that is David H Levy gave us a wonderful talk about his love of astronomy and literature. And to hear him recount the story of the discovery and impact on Jupiter of Shoemaker- Levy 9 was very special.

It was so engaging and relaxed to just have him talk to us without presentation slides, like he was just sitting around with us and chatting. A very special experience and one to remember. Watch the video if you missed it.

David joined us online for one of our previous talks, when ASE member Randall Stevenson presented Comet Tales: Thomas Hardy, Literature and Astronomy, 1850 to the Twentieth Century. He really enjoyed it a lot, having similar interests and offered to do a talk for us.
