Night Sky

Observing Evenings

No upcoming events at the moment

The CAA 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.

We will have a selection of telescope with different types of camera linked up to stream detailed views of the moon and planets.


Along with several wider fields-of-view idea for seeking out Galaxies, Star Clusters and Nebulae.


In the event of cloud, we may give a short talk or planetarium style show of what we would have chased down for you if it had been clear!


and it is all absolutely free with no need to book unless you are bringing a large group of more than six, in which case it's best to speak to someone about it first!

The online viewing only covers the talk in the lecture theatre and doesn't cover the live sky tour.
