Learn about what causes the Aurora and hopefully see it for yourself from the fantastic stargazing location at the Sill National Landscape Discovery Centre. Astronomers will have their telescopes at the ready for observing fascinating objects in the night sky. Suitable for families including beginners ages 11 and older. Why not make an evening of it and book for a special pre-event dinner with two courses for just £15 per person!?
