The Night Sky Live

and members of the CAA

The event is integrated with the Institute of Astronomy's public open night program and begins at 8pm following the indoor lecture which starts at 19:15 - see below for how to join.


Paul and the team will give you a guided tour of the night sky, picking out a number of objects of interest via the array of telescopes which all link up to the large screens so that everyone in attendance can see at once.

The historic telescopes will be open and you will be able to break away from the main show and go and queue for a peak through these classic telescopes, all guided by an expert operator.

We will have the CAA's 14-inch telescope with camera linked to screen for detailed views of the moon and planets.
