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!

Our astronomy evenings commence again in October and run on the third Wednesday of the month until March.
