Join Ace of Space Astronomy for a fun and interactive way to learn all about the cosmos exploring the planets, moons, stars and beyond.
There will be an indoor presentation, suitable for beginners of all ages. Followed by a star gazing session outside weather permitting. Here, you can enjoy the darkest of skies especially since this special spot in Northumberland falls near Europe’s largest dark sky park, so fingers crossed for a clear night.
