This program of events is designed to give both visitors and locals an opportunity to view the diverse wonders of the night sky through our 8″ reflecting telescope. However our Scottish weather does not always allow us an unobstructed view of the starry heavens!

If it is cloudy on the night there will be an indoor planetarium presentation on the same subject. A follow up outdoor telescope session will be arranged for the first clear night after the event.

We also put on monthly observing evenings from August to April which are advertised via our Facebook page. These are inevitably announced at short notice once we have a firm weather forecast!

The Red Planet

Mars will be closer to Earth than it has been for two years. Join us to get a closer look at the Red Planet against a backdrop of the Orionids meteor shower. Jupiter and Saturn will also be visible tonight.
