From time to time, the Sun, Moon and Earth line up to produce solar and lunar eclipses. These magical conjunctions are breathtaking and rare and here at the Battlesteads Dark Sky Observatory, you can view them in comfort.
The observatory will be open from midnight on Sunday the 27th until the early hours of monday morning. Weather permitting there will be telescope, binocular and naked eye viewing of the lunar eclipse, and an opportunity to take photographs of it if you bring cameras. If the skies remain clear, we'll also use the main telescope to hop about the night sky, giving you an introductory tour of stars, galaxies and the universe.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are already a ticket holder for the astrophotography night tomorrow (the evening of the 28th), then your ticket for that event can be used to gain entry to this event for free.
