Join the astronomers at Mills Observatory for this one of their regular free weekday evenings open nights through their Winter season, which run from October through to the end of March.
Observe breathtaking views of the Moon and planets and see some of the brighter star clusters, nebulae and galaxies through their giant state-of-the-art 16-inch diameter telescope. On Friday evenings, they often have shown in their planetarium.
These events offer a fantastic family evening out and excellent value with free admission and free parking! No booking is required to attend the observatory; however, prior booking is necessary for the planetarium shows.
