Gaze into the stars with this humorous interactive sculpture dedicated to the city’s astro-physics genius Jeremiah Horrocks.
Born in Toxteth in 1617 and living to just 22, Jeremiah discovered the Transit of Venus in 1639, pioneered astronomy in an age of ‘witchcraft and alchemy’ and was hailed as a ‘giant’ by Isaac Newton.
Enjoy a short animation through the giant telescope and learn about other facets of this incredible man’s achievements.
