Public Open Night at Institute of Astronomy

Wednesday 22nd March 2017 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Institute of Astronomy

University of Cambridge, Cambridge, CB3 0HA


This event one of a regular weekly first-come-first-served free public open evenings at Cambridge University's Institute of Astronomy. It's a fantastic opportunity to look through the institute's large Northumberland and Thorrowgood telescopes from within the observatory. Members from Cambridge Astronomical Society will also be on hand with their telescopes. Observing is weather dependent, however an Astronomer from the Institute will present a half-hour talk.

- This event is weather dependent and will only take place if the skies are clear enough for observing. It is therefore necessary to check the weather forecast and confirm with the event organisers that this event is going ahead.


This event is being organised by Cambridge Astronomical Society who should be contacted if you have any queries. We highly recommend you confirm this event is indeed going ahead before travelling. If you do attend it would be fantastic if you could let the organiser know you found them via Go Stargazing!


Please contact Cambridge Astronomical Society directly for more details regarding this event or, if appropriate, contact the event venue.
