Celebrate the Lifelong Learning Festival with us and come and check out the daytime Moon. From 4pm – 7pm use our small scopes in the courtyard to see the mountains on the Moon.


The Moon is a spectacular sight when seen through a telescope. Dark, flat plains called maria, deep craters and bright rays of ejected material pepper the rugged surface. Although we see the Moon all the time, many of us do not take time to consider our planet’s only satellite.


This event is weather dependent! No booking required
