Spy the late autumn constellations in all their glory, along with colourful double stars, distant galaxies and sparkling star clusters through powerful telescopes. See Saturn with its amazing ring formation!
This event will go ahead regardless of cloud cover as you will still be able to see the stars using computer simulation (dress to be outside though!).
Please note that this event has already taken place on 12/10/2019
