PERSEIDS OPEN EVENING 11th AUG
Come and join us on FRIDAY 11th August for our Open Evening. We open at 8pm and you will have an opportunity to look through some of the largest historic telescope in the country at some fascinating celestial objects including Saturn and the Moon (later on). We will also be looking out for some fast moving meteors (shooting stars) associated with the Perseids meteor shower. All weather permitting of course (see Open Evenings in the Astronomy section for further details). No booking is required for the Open Evening. While this evening is the day before the maximum number of meteors is seen per hour it is still well worth looking out for them. Normal admission price applies.
