Heaven and Earth
Part of the Liverpool Discovers event, the Telescope installed at the Pier head, Liverpool celebrates the work of Jeremiah Horrocks. Born in liverpool in 1617, from his early years he was a ground breaking astronomer. He was the first man to find out that the moon's orbit was elliptcial rather than circular and he also the first to calculate and record the transit of Venus in 1639.
