Kaiser Spring Lectures 2019

These lectures are meant for anyone who has an interest in astronomy.

Four Saturdays full of astronomy

The Leiden Astronomical Student Society 'F. Kaiser 'and the Leiden Old Observatory organise the traditional Kaiser Spring Lectures, the annual series of lectures for the general public. Four experts from both Leiden University and abroad will come to the Old Observatory to give a lecture on a central theme for the promotion of astronomy.
In honour of the 50-year jubilee of the moon landing, the theme this year is 'Back to the Moon'.

Two of these four lectures will be in English.
