You are invited to join the astronomers at Mills Observatory for this one of their regular open evenings. Observe breathtaking views of the moon and planets and despite local light pollution 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 evening out and great value too (small charge applies to planetarium shows). No booking required — just turn up!
