Greg Quicke - Astronomer and author at Broome Library

  • -
  • Broome Public Library
    Cnr Haas and Hamersley Streets, Broome WA 6725, Australia

Greg Quicke will share his journey through space and time to become a famous astronomer and author of two non-fiction books, and provides an every-day insight into the otherwise complex science of astronomy. 

Greg delivers Astro Tour shows from May to October near Broome. He has also written two non-fiction books on the topic of astronomy. He joined Professor Brian Cox as the Practical Astronomer for the last four seasons of the BBC’s and the ABC’s Stargazing Live.

Dubbed ‘Space Gandalf’ by the audience, Greg and the ABC went on to make the multi award winning 10 part television series ‘A Stargazers Guide to the Cosmos’, based on Greg’s book, ‘Earth Turning Consciousness - an Exercise in Planetary Awareness’. 

Some lucky audience members will receive prizes of Astro Tour tickets or copies of Greg’s books.

This event is a joint National Science Week and Corrugated Lines Writers Festival event.
