Well explained introduction with fact and theory, prior to moving outside to see the content of the night’s sky, which is followed by use of the Observatory’s telescope. Fantastic position and well surfaced road to access the venue. All round thumbs up!

Hello Pat. The Observatory is aware of the chaotic entrance to the English session last Monday. You are right: we were not well prepared for the unpredicted fog, wind and rain we suffered, among other problems. I am happy to tell you we are following...More
