Event description

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.
