Silent Sky

Silent Sky is the story of Henrietta Leavitt (1868-1922), an American astronomer who worked at Harvard College Observatory as a “computer” reviewing data about the skies. In a male dominated field and not allowed access to a telescope, she nevertheless made ground-breaking discoveries about the universe which resonate to this day in the field of astronomy.
