"Journey to the Centre of Our Galaxy"

Clear summer nights are the best for a journey of 25,000 light years to the centre of our Galaxy, the Milky Way. Come and learn about our galaxy and the incredible sights we can see along the way to its core. Armed with only binocular you will be able to re-explore this path at leisure. You will not view the night-sky the same way again!

Admission:  $5 (at the door); reductions for families (minimum age 8 years)
