Wynyard Observatory Open Night

Wynyard Planetarium & Observatory

Thorpe Thewles, Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, TS21 3JG


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! And stargazing is pretty much guaranteed!

- 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.
