Preston’s covered market will see a light shone on it like never before.
The Sun At Night is an art installation which combines science and a chance to see the sun like never before.
Artists David Henckel and Dan Wilkinson take a year’s worth of footage of the sun and condense it into 30 minutes.
A large cylinder will be installed on the market and viewers will be able to look inside accompanied by a musical soundtrack.
David said: “A contemporary equivalent to the public lectures of Preston astronomer Moses Holden, who used an orrery (model of the solar system) and magic lanterns to educate the public about our solar system, The Sun at Night allows the public to experience some of the cutting edge solar physics research which takes place at the University of Central Lancashire.”
The event takes place on Saturday 30 November from 7.15pm to 5am and on Sunday 1 December begins from 5pm to 5am.
