Join experienced astronomer Richard Darn in search of distant galaxies and sparkling star clusters at this spring star party. This is one of the best times of year to observe. The constellation of Leo dominates the southern sky and we’ll take you on a tour of the heavens.
The hot world of Venus is also well placed in the sky, very near the much fainter Uranus! But we’ll start with a colourful beginner’s talk in the education barn to set the scene and answer some of those questions you’ve always wanted to ask. Event goes ahead in all weather. You will even get the chance to learn how to take simple pictures of the night sky.
