Aerobility in the diary

It may seem a long way off but the aviation charity Aerobility is asking you to put Saturday 13 March at 18:00 (GMT) in your diary for a spectacular video event.

Hosted by impressionist Jon Culshaw, Armchair Aurora plans to ‘Light Up Lockdown’.

The free-to-attend event will livestream via www.youtube.com and will take viewers on a journey of wonder from their armchairs and into the skies.

Bringing together spectacular Aurora footage, interviews and Q&A with scientists, there will be insights on polar aviation and the workings of the Aurora, all beamed to living rooms around the UK and worldwide. Jon Culshaw is lining up a host of astronomers, scientists, aviators and artists for an hour-long event to brighten up a Saturday evening.

“This event is just one example of how we continue to support the disabled community and continue to inspire ability through aviation during lockdown, while aircraft are grounded. If I were to describe what it will be like, I would say, think ‘Spring Watch meets the Sky at Night’, exclaimed Aerobility CEO, Mike Miller-Smith.

Expert speakers will include:

  • Pete Lawrence, the British amateur astronomer best known for his popularisation of astronomy on the BBC's The Sky at Night with Sir Patrick Moore.
  • Nigel Meredith: Space Weather Scientist, British Antarctic Survey (BAS).
  • Rod Arnold: Head of Air Unit, BAS.

Viewers will be invited to submit questions to the experts during the event. To round off the evening, the event will conclude with a ‘Sounds of Space’ music extravaganza, delivering 30min of tranquillity and beauty to viewers, with aurora footage accompanied by appropriately ambient music.

A limited number of sponsorship opportunities are still available. Please contact marcus@aerobility.com for more details or visit www.aerobility.com/armchairaurora
