This is an evening for those of you who have always wondered what’s out there.

An opportunity to ask all those questions;

“What is a star?”

“Why is Pluto no longer a planet?”

“What are we doing to find life elsewhere?”

Learn about our solar system, our local neighbourhood, and we will even discuss distant galaxies and the far reaches of the universe.


Please be aware, when observing is possible, temperatures can be severe and the ground underfoot can be soft and wet, to ensure your own comfort, please wear suitable attire.

- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.

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