You are invited to join the astronomers at Mills Observatory for this one of their regular open evenings through their winter season (October to March).

Observe breathtaking views of the moon and planets and see some of the brighter star-clusters, nebulae and galaxies through their huge state-of-the-art 16 inch diameter telescope. 

Various space-themed exhibitions are also on show. With free admission and free parking these events offer a fantastic family trip out and great value too (small charge applies to planetarium shows).  No booking required — just turn up!

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
