Airdrie Observatory Open Evening

Airdrie Observatory Open Evening

Tuesday every week from November 2023 to January 2024

Airdrie Observatory
Airdrie Library, Airdrie, Lanarkshire, ML6 0AG

Enjoy a warm welcome by astronomers from the Airdrie Astronomical Association to this one of their regular November through to January Tuesday night public open evenings of the Airdrie Observatory.

These events are ideal for beginners and anyone interested in astronomy — the friendly and experienced volunteers proudly carry on a long tradition of public engagement and teaching dating back to when the observatory opened in 1896.

The event includes an astronomical presentation and observing through the observatory telescope, an impressive 6″ Victorian refractor, which affords lovely views of the planets and the moon.

Attending is free, and there is no need to book in advance (unless you are in a big group). It is an excellent idea for an early evening out with family and friends — and you’ll be supporting a fantastic facility (and people), too!

The observatory is also open for group visits – please get in touch with them to reserve your night!

Please note that this has already taken place on 01/11/2023
