Join the team from Hidden Horizons and enjoy a guided tour of the night sky, focusing on objects in our solar system (the Moon and other planets) as well as stars that reside far away from Earth within our Milky Way galaxy.
Use their telescopes and binoculars to view a range of constellations and the objects that reside within them, including deep sky objects such as nebulae, star clusters and galaxies.
Events go ahead no matter the weather with an indoor planetarium ready if the weather is not ideal.
