'Oumuamua sculpture project announcement
A fantastic new project is underway at EAARO, to complement its search for extraterrestrial intelligence.
'Oumuamua. Is it an alien artifact? An asteroid? Maybe a comet?
A team led by Artist-in-residence Diana Scarborough is all set to develop an exciting large-scale interactive sculpture of the first observed interstellar object to leave our solar system faster than it entered.
The 'Oumuamua sculpture will tour nationally and internationally to some of our most prestigious art venues and other high-profile public art sites, allowing for wide engagement in this thrilling art-science initiative.

Quadrantids Meteor Challenge
We need your help detecting the meteors in our observation data from the Quadrantids meteor shower! Join the challenge now! Download the poster.
The audio file can be downloaded here (wav format, 40mb).
Event: Geminid meteor shower - 13-14th Dec
LIVESTREAM from 10pm
The Geminids are strong meteor shower caused by the object 3200 Phaethon, which is thought to be a Palladian asteroid with a "rock comet" orbit. This would make the Geminids, together with the Quadrantids, the only major meteor showers not originating from a comet.
We will be using antennae and digital receivers to capture radio waves reflecting off the ionised trails of meteors as the enter the atmosphere over southern Europe.
