Airdrie Observatory

Airdrie Library, Airdrie, ML6 0AG


Description

Enjoy a warm welcome by astronomers from 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 with an interest in astronomy -- the friendly and experienced volunteers proudly carrying on a long tradition of public engagement and teaching that dates 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 wonderful views of the planets and the moon.  

Attending is free of charge and there is no need to book in advance (unless you are in a big group). A great idea for an early evening out with family and friends -- and you'll be supporting a fantastic facility (and people) too!

- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.

- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
