Jason Hall from Ashford Astronomical Society took Tenterden Rotarians on a journey to the stars as he explained some fundamental principles of astronomy with some impressive images and video. He told us that the star Betelgeuse is so far away that we are seeing how it looked 400 million years ago, it may have already gone supernova and exploded without anyone knowing, so if the night sky suddenly lights up, best take cover.
