Astronomer and children’s author visits St. Mary’s

Dr Mitton, Astronomer and children’s author visited St. Mary’s today. Having written numerous books for children including Zoo in the Sky, Dr Mitton has spent the day leading workshops for all ages. We have learnt so much and even held a meteorite that was over 50,000 years old!

As well as writing books, Dr Mitton has worked as Editor of
the journal of the British Astronomical Association and even has an asteroid named after her.
