Just across the border… Come to Settle (North Yorks) for a day out you’ll never forget!
Marking the end of World Space Week we present to you ‘The Star Party’- a collaboration between Settle Stories, Manchester Metropolitan University & Bradford Astronomical Society. We’ve got over 10 events just for adults & children.
Kids – Make your own rocket that really will fly using compressed gas. You’ll have the chance to draw a picture that will be carved into a REAL spacecraft.
Adults – Join a talk on the history of astronomy from the astrolabe to the Hubble Space Telescope to the future of astronomy.
Families – Detect what’s in the sky with ‘Solar Observing’ using our hydrogen alpha telescope in the day and ‘Astronomical Observing’ after sunset with guided tours of the night sky.
Everyone will enjoy the indoor planetarium and discover the hidden myths and legends of our night sky.
