January 25 2019 Stargazing at RAL

January 25, 2019

Rutherford Appleton Lab, Harwell Campus

Rutherford Appleton Laboratory annual stargazing event will have plenty of activities for the whole family, whatever the weather. There’ll be meteorites, rocket building, comet making, face-painting, a series of fascinating talks, robots and of course stargazing. There’ll also be a telescope clinic run by our partners Newbury Astronomy Society, so if you have a telescope and need some help setting it up then do bring it in. There will be some experts on hand to explain how they use the Diamond Light Source to find out more about meteorites and comets, and you’ll be able to visit the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source to learn how we use particle accelerators to learn more about space.
Planetarium shows will run throughout the evening, but places on these are limited owing to the size of our planetaria, and so are allocated by lottery.

Once the event is fully booked, you will be able to sign up to our waiting list.

Booking will open on Friday 11 January at 12:00 midday via the booking link:
