What you see in the sky tonight will be the focus of your learning experience.
We will target the Solar System objects and the brightest stars in our sky as seen from planet Earth. We will explain cycles to help you prepare for gazing any time you prefer.
The Moon is likely to be accessible and we will focus our telescopes on its rugged features and share information about the latest missions. Moon phases will be explained in a way you will find easy to remember.
The panoramic view from our sky dome will help you to understand the sky view as seen by ancient gazers. Gather up tips and tricks to take away and share with your friends and family at home or on your next camping adventure.
