The University of Birmingham Observatory invites you to attend this free public stargazing event. This is a great opportunity to visit the observatory and look through their huge 50cm aperture reflecting telescope. The event includes talks from experts and plenty of opportunity to ask them anything astronomical! Visitor numbers to the observatory itself are limited and a ballot takes place for those arriving before 17:55. Those who are not selected in the ballot can still observe from observatory atop the University’s Physics building. These events are ticket only and prior booking is essential!
