Astronomy Evenings are a fantastic chance to learn more about the worlds above us! We start this series of events by finding out what is actually up there in space?

Explore some of the incredible structures in space such as nebulae, planets and the moon using our brand-new planetarium which will be giving its maiden voyage!

Have a go at stargazing (weather dependent) using telescopes, binoculars and our eyes! Winter is the perfect time to learn, identify, and hear the stories behind some of the most famous constellations. Plus get involved with some awesome craft and much more!

Please note that this has already taken place on 18/11/2023

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
