Calling all children………Coming to us live from her Hanover home in 1828, Caroline casts her mind back to when her brother William discovered the planet Uranus, a discovery that changed their lives forever!

On this video call, you’ll be taken on a virtual tour of the Herschel Museum of Astronomy and have a chance to ask Caroline your own questions.
