  • A fantastic 3 hrs of star gazing. With information pitched at the right level by enthusiastic staff. I highly recommend giving it a go.
  • A fantastic evening learning about auroras and looking up at the stars! Gary and Andy were brilliant, very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Definitely looking forward to going again in future!
