Astronomy event – Spring night sky and constellations

Event details

-
Events at Sherwood Pines - Classroom opposite the Gruffalo.

Enjoy a night out in the solar system with a big moon looming large over the forest and the biggest planet of them all, Jupiter, putting on its best display for eight years.  We'll also show you how to take a picture of the moon using your mobile phone as a keepsake plus we'll have colourful talks and equipment advice.  Even if the weather intrudes a special tour of the constellations on a big screen will provide plenty of wow moments.

This event is suitable for all abilities, however if you are a beginner we will introduce you to stargazing, guide you through how to observe the night sky and give you tips about the best equipment to use.

These events are not suitable for young children, all participants must be aged 8 and over.
