In the Night Sky (Adults/Events)

A great talk for those wanting to know more about our night sky. We take a look at star constellations, the reasoning behind the myths and legends, as well as investigate what skies were like for our ancestors. We touch on the importance of a dark sky, not just for stargazing but also health too and if the skies are clear, there may be the opportunity for some visual observations, using either the telescope, or a laser guided tour of the stars.

"We arranged for Space Detectives to visit our son’s school and show the amazing VR experience to the Year 1 and 2 students. I asked my son if the class enjoyed the sessions, he told me they LOVED IT and then start telling me lots of amazing spaces facts! Great experience and highly recommended"
