Come and take a tour of our observatories and have an introduction to the night sky. When possible, you’ll have the opportunity to observe the Moon, planets, and stars with our telescopes and binoculars. If the weather lets us down, our team will equip you with some handy hints and tips for finding your way around the night sky, so the events go ahead whatever the weather.

Also included in every event is the opportunity to find out more about space science. This can include meteorite handling, using an infra-red camera to discover how space telescopes work.
