Giant radio telescope transformed for space light show
The UK’s largest radio telescope became the canvas for a sound and light show at the Bluedot festival.

The festival saw images from space, including pictures from Nasa’s James Webb Space Telescope beamed on to its 76-metre dish, using the dish as a huge film screen.

The show, titled Sky’s Eye view includes the latest data from the sun and images of the moon as well as time-lapse sequences of the Earth from Nasa’s Blue Marble satellite data.

The soundtrack features recordings from space, including the ‘sonification’ of the radio telescape’s scan of the Milky Way.
