Music Night 28th July 2018
Join us for a fantastic evening of LIVE Music with critically acclaimed band 'William the Conqueror' Cornwall trio William the Conqueror have been picking up praise from far flung corners ever since Ruarri Joseph took the step to go public with his erstwhile secret alter-ego. Debut album, Proud Disturber of the Peace, was released in 2017 to widespread critical acclaim and their shows have been steadily winning over fans up and down the country. During the evening there will also be a chance to look through the telescopes at Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and the Moon.

MARS OPPOSITION 27th JULY
Open Evening 8pm - 12.30am. This very special evening is really one that should not be missed. Venus is bright and beautiful in the west and will be seen just before the Sun begins to set at 8.56pm. The full Moon rises at 8.49pm BUT it will be totally eclipsed so a fabulous start to a night of observing. Both Jupiter and Saturn will already be in the sky and visible as it becomes darker and then Mars will rise at about 9.40pm looking bright and pretty red. It will be on the opposite side of the Earth to the Sun and during this time and at the time of closest approach a few days later it will even outshine Jupiter. What a fabulous set of night sky objects which you will be able to look at through some of the country's largest telescopes. Come and soak up the incredible atmosphere and enjoy a very special evening with us. There will also be a fascinating talk about Mars.
