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!

Upcoming events

Astronomy evenings

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.

Book your free tickets:
