Isle of Man Astronomer Howard Parkin tours the world lecturing on astronomy. He’s a fabulous advocate for our dark skies, appointed by the International Dark Skies Association.
Our friends at The Cafe at the Sound have teamed up with Howard to host an eclipse breakfast on 25 October, offering a fabulous opportunity to experience dramatic evidence of our place in the solar system, caused when the Sun, Moon and Earth align. Tickets are available from the Sound Cafe, or call 01624 838123.
See more details on our guide to viewing the partial eclipse on the 25th of October.
Please note that this has already taken place on 25/10/2022
