Join Dr. Dan Brown & Daniel Turner of Nottingham Trent University who will bring the night sky into our caves with a stunning digital projection! See the constellations and planets in the cave, and hear a short presentation about the skies and the connection between astronomy and prehistoric caves. There will also have an astro observing station (telescopes) and Stellarium: see what you can spot in the darkening sky and learn how to do it yourself.
