Stargazing Evening at the World Museum

Friday, 8th November 2019 @ 17:30 - 21:00 GMT

From https://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/wml/events/displayevent.aspx?EventId=41320


Join us for a unique journey to the stars as we open late for our spectacular stargazing night on Friday 8 November, 5.30pm to 9.00pm!

Back by popular demand, our stargazing night is perfect for anyone with an interest in Astronomy and Space who is keen to discover more about the night sky and what it takes to make it as an astronaut!

The event is most suitable for adults and families with children aged 8 or above and there will be some activities for those aged 6+.

Meet the experts, choose from five fascinating talks on varied topics presented by Professor Andy Newsam, Dr Kevin Bowman, Dr Jackie Bell, Steve Southern and Alan Cross. Explore the planets with a VR headset in our virtual reality demonstration, and if it’s a clear sky, stargaze through telescopes in our pop-up observatory.

There’ll also be fun and educational space craft activities for budding astronauts to enjoy, and exciting shows throughout the evening in our fulldome planetarium.

Museum members go free, but you will still need to book a ticket.
