The year 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first moon landings and to mark that leap for humankind we are staging a special stargazing event on 16 March.

The moon will be in a partial phase which is ideal for seeing deep valleys, high mountains and craters using powerful telescopes. The views can be astounding and we’ll even be able to see the area where Neil Armstrong first set foot on the lunar surface. You will also be encouraged to take a picture using your smartphone, plus we will search of the spring constellations and identify the brightest stars.

Even if the clouds roll in there’ll still be colourful presentations and a chance to learn more about the night sky and discover how the moon inspired the first science fiction film!
