Famous Astronomer Inspires Pupils

Ahead of this week’s solar eclipse, Paul Money, the well-known astronomer, was at Heighington Millfield Primary Academy to talk to Isaac our YJA Space Correspondent.

It was not only Isaac who enjoyed meeting the highly talented star gazer, the whole class were inspired by Paul’s explanation (often humorous) of the movement of our planets.

With the eclipse occurring in the morning, you still have time to listen to the interview!

    Great article Isaac he was a amazing man also very funny. When he came I could not contain my excitment I even may have lost my cool! But despite all the funny vocies and jokes we learnt so much from him. The main thing I learnt was that the eclipse was actually even happerning, however when he told me what was happening I just had to go and watch it. By the way it took alot of corage to do it infront of the whole 5/6! Also I love his tie wheres it from again. 🙂 Well done Isaac! 😀
