What's On

Find out what's on at the Observatory Science Centre for 2019. We're offering a packed programme, with some new things on offer this year!

Telescope Clinic for Adults

£55.00 per Adult

The course is a mix of classroom based teaching in one of the domes and practical hands-on teaching outdoors so you can learn how to use your telescope. Members of East Sussex Astronomical Society will guide you through setting up your telescope and getting the best out of it. Weather permitting they will also start you on your way to viewing the night sky. Only 1 space left please phone The Centre on 01323 832731. FULLY BOOKED

Winter Comets and Curry

£38.00 per Adult

14th November. The debris left behind by the comet Tempel-Tuttle gives rise to the Leonids meteor shower. Join us for a warming curry and informative talk before heading out to try and spot some meteors (shooting stars). If the weather is good you will also have an opportunity to look through the historic telescopes, some of the largest working telescopes in the country.

Stargazing Evenings

£8.75 per Adult — £6.75 per Child

Come and enjoy the fabulous atmosphere that surrounds the Observatory at night and, weather permitting look through some of the largest telescopes in the country at some extraordinary night sky objects. Don't worry if it is cloudy we have a cloudy night contingency; a fascinating planetarium style talk! No booking required.

Celebration Sundays

It is the 25th anniversary of The Observatory Science Centre in 2020 and we are celebrating throughout the year. Celebration Sundays will be held on the first Sunday of every month from February to November (with the exception of September). There will be different themes and activities each month but we will be showcasing just how much fun science actually is.
