The Observatory Science Centre
Herstmonceux, Hailsham, BN27 1RN
This event offers a fantastic opportunity to look through the incredibly impressive historical telescopes at Herstmonceux which offer amazing views of the moon, planets and objects way beyond from their dark sky location. Viewing is subject to weather conditions so be sure to check the forecast first, however the event will go ahead no matter the weather with a presentation in their planetarium and a tour of the observatory. Oh and take a red torch so not to spoil your night vision!
