Astronomy night classes in our full-dome digital Planetarium. We'll guide you expertly through the night sky, learning the major constellations as we go, before journeying into space and exploring the vast cosmos.
This night class is for 16+ only, and will run on consecutive Monday nights 7-9pm for four weeks (8, 15, 22 & 29 January 2024). Each 2-hour class will be delivered by Astronomer Steve Owens together with our planetarium team.
The topics the course will cover include:
> The Night Sky: stargazing for beginners and what to look for over the course of the year
> The Solar System: a tour of the fascinating planets and moons of our corner of the cosmos
> The Life and Death of Stars: how are stars born, and how do they end?
> Life in the Universe: the hunt for extra-terrestrial life
> Galaxies and Nebulae: searching for beautiful star-clusters, violent nebulae, and distant galaxies
> The Big Bang: a journey back in time to the beginning of everything.
There's no formal assessment or homework; simply come along to marvel at the beauty of our universe, and relax under the glittering stars of our Planetarium.
