Event description

Join astronomers from Teeside Astronomical Science Centre for their regular Tuesday evening open night at their observatory in Wynyard Park, near the planetarium.

These events are weather dependent -- if the skies are looking like they will be clear you are welcome to come along, free of charge and without the need to book your visit in advance.

This is a great opportunity for everyone including families to experience observing interesting and distant objects through a large telescope!
