Join the team at Mills Observatory for one of their free open evenings that run regularly through their winter season from October through to the end of March.
Observe breath-taking views of the Moon and planets and see some of the brighter star clusters, nebulae and galaxies through their large 16-inch diameter telescope.
They often have planetarium shows on Friday evenings, but please note that these require telephone booking and incur a small charge.
These events offer a fantastic family evening out and excellent value with free admission and free parking. No booking is required to visit the observatory.
Please note that this has already taken place on 08/12/2023
