Details

Come with us on this beginners guide to the galaxy. Expand your horizons by discovering more about the stars and the planets in our solar system and the galaxies beyond! We’ll start with a short talk in our theatre and then show you some of the wonders of the universe such as Jupiter and its moons, Venus and a galaxy about 10 million light years away.

Stars, moon and planets affect tides and the seasons and we’re able to find our way using them. But animals also use them to navigate and to decide when to migrate.

So wrap up warm and come and enjoy an evening among the stars. And if it’s too cloudy to see much we’ll whip out our bat detectors and show you a different type of aerial superstar!
