Join experienced astronomer, Richard Darn for an entertaining talk at Bowlees Visitor Centre.
This year is the 50th anniversary of the first humans stepping foot on the moon. But where are we going next? We’ll be pushing the boundaries to trace the next stage of our journey into the cosmos. When will we go to Mars and will we ever be able to visit the stars?
Weather permitting we will also go outside stargazing with telescopes and binoculars and give you a crash course on the Autumn constellations and Milky Way!
