Gary Fildes | Astronomer

Welcome to my site.

I have created it so that I can reach out to as many people as possible and spread the word about how important astronomy is. In the process I hope my personal story will hopefully inspire people to reach out and engage with the universe around us all.


It’s been said that ‘astronomy is a humbling experience’ – well Thats certainly my experience. We all surely have an innate curiosity to find out about the universe around us – how does it all work, why are we here? Where did the universe come from? are there natural laws that govern how everything works? and will we ever know enough to finally say – we know our place.

Looking up into a starry sky has inspired musicians lovers, poets and generations upon generations of humans, in doing so we ponder the true meaning of reality.

Through my talks, writing and speaking programmes I aim to reach as many people as possible and in my own enthusiastic way convey the secrets of our universe.
