100 years ago, the Milky Way was the only known galaxy. We now know there are hundreds of billions of galaxies, each with hundreds of billions of stars.
Clouds of illuminated gas, star clusters and galaxies have become known as Deep Sky objects. Pete Williamson FRAS will show us how to find them.
Pete will help us to make the best of our Dark Sky Status with hands on observing with hints, tips and explanations.
The evening starts with homemade soup, included in the price. Booking required.
