This two-hour stargazing experience with telescopes will take you on a fascinating guided tour of the autumn night sky, pinpointing some of the brighter stars, familiar and unfamiliar constellations, myths and legends of the stars and much more.
There will also be an opportunity to view our Moon and the planets Saturn, Jupiter and Mars, all of which are visible on the date. Dr John Mason MBE’s ‘living planetarium’ night-time tour uses the real night sky as an outdoor star theatre.
This event will be held on the Lawns Polo Ground and is ticketed.
