Join the Mexborough and Swinton Astronomical Society astronomers at this public open evening of their wonderful observatory.
These open evenings take place when the phase of the Moon is optimum and offer a fantastic opportunity to view incredible objects using telescopes. If the skies are cloudy, there will be a planetarium show in the observatory dome.
Numbers are limited and cost £5 per person (£2.50 for under 16’s), with all money going towards supporting their charity. Please reserve your spaces for this event via the Eventbrite website.
