The Old Inverasdale Schoolhouse
Inverasdale, Poolewe, Ross-shire, IV22 2LR
Following on from the Planetarium shows in Gairloch Community hall we are delighted to invite the Cosmos Planetarium team to run a stargazing evening at the Old Schoolhouse in Inverasdale with support from the National Lottery Community Fund to celebrate our fantastic night skies!
Look up at the stars through a telescope with experienced astronomers and learn about what we can see at this time of year in Wester Ross.
We hope for clear skies but if it’s cloudy there will be an informative and fun talk about the cosmos and a chance to look at the stars in 3D via interactive virtual reality headsets!
There will also be some cosmic colouring in activities for children and hot drinks to keep you cosy.
Please arrive 15 mins early.
This event is free but places are limited so book your place now!
Please note that this has already taken place on 26/11/2022
