Star Gazing

Come and find out more about constellations, meteorites, and space missions at the University’s own Astrocampus.

Weather permitting, you’ll have the opportunity to observe the Moon, planets, and stars with our telescopes and binoculars. If the weather lets us down, the team will equip you with some handy hints and tips for finding your way around the night sky, so the events go ahead whatever the weather.

There’ll also be the opportunity to find out more about space science including meteorite handling, using an infra-red camera to discover how space telescopes work, and investigating spacecraft in 3D using our iPads.

Tickets are fee and the event is suitable for all ages.
