New for 2020
This brand new course for 2020 is offering a shorter more targeted course for beginners. It will help you digest the subject matter in easy to understand language, guiding you through all aspects of the Solar System. It will include looking at the Earth, Moon and Sun, other planets and their moons and will also include comets, asteroids and meteorites.
The course is presented on one evening per week from Wednesday 16th September to Wednesday 7th October.
This course is also designed so that you can take advantage of The Centre's historic telescopes. Viewing is of course weather permitting and due to the nature of the course content it may also not be possible because of time constraints. However, if the weather is good there may be opportunities for you to look through a large telescope during the 4 weeks.
This course is aimed at adults. If you wish to enquire about booking an under 18 (with a full paying accompanying adult) onto the course then please phone The Centre on 01323 832731. Not suitable for under 14.
Course lecturer: Jarvis Brand
