  • is this the sort of event that you need to be at for the full times shown or can you drop in a bit later? i may not be able to get there until 9pm and wondered if I will still get the full experience? 

    • HI, sorry I have not replied earlier Gabrielle. The format for the evening is:
      short talk/ outdoor scopes
      split into groups for the dome/3D theatre
      come back to view using outdoor scopes
