Join astronomers at the Astronomy Centre for this one of a series of special midweek openings of their facility. Timed to coincide with a new moon when the skies will be at their darkest this is a great opportunity to explore the Universe using state of the art optical equipment. These events are a relaxed affair with informal discussions and a presentation on an astronomical theme if the weather is poor.
