Astronomy evenings

Are you curious about astronomy and interested in hearing more? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to look at the stars, planets or the moon through a telescope? Or have you ever thought I’d love to hear about exciting current astronomy research? Then here’s your chance!

No upcoming events due to Covid-19

Astronomy evenings

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and following the latest advice from the government relating to large gatherings, we have taken the decision to postpone all events. This decision currently applies to all events scheduled to take place between now and 31 May. Beyond that date, we will continue to follow government advice.

Come and join the Astrophysics Research Group here at the University, on one of our astronomy evenings.

The evenings will begin with an exciting, cutting edge research lecture, followed by going up to our telescope to view the night sky. If the weather is not good, we will give you a tour of what you can see in the night sky on clearer nights. Members of our Astrophysics Research Group will be on hand during the evening to answer your questions.

If you have any queries please contact Samantha Weston, Public Engagement and Outreach Manager at
