Throughout the year astronomers from Norwich Astronomical Society hold regular public open nights at their observatory in Seething. It's a great opportunity to escape from the city lights and view the starry skies from this dark sky location. Enjoy a presentation (which vary throughout the year) by one of the experienced lecturers, a guided tour of the facility and, if the skies are clear, observing using the large telescopes. Doors open 19:30 for 20:00 start. Small entrance fee, children welcome (8+ recommended), no need to book just turn up on the night!

- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.

- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
