Wynyard Planetarium & Observatory

Thorpe Thewles, Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, TS21 3JG


Description

Join astronomers from the Teeside Astronomical Science Centre for this one of their regular Tuesday evening open nights of their observatory in the grounds of Wynyard Park. These events are weather dependent -- if the skies are looking like they will be clear you are welcome to come along, free of charge and without the need to book your visit in advance. This is a great opportunity for everyone including families to experience observing interesting and distant objects through a large telescope!

- This event is weather dependent and will only take place if the skies are clear enough for observing. It is therefore necessary to check the weather forecast and confirm with the event organisers that this event is going ahead.

This event is being organised by Teeside Astronomy Science Centre who should be contacted if you have any queries. We highly recommend you confirm this event is indeed going ahead before travelling.
