Unfortunately, tonight’s stargazing event at Great Notley Country Park is cancelled (Jan 20th) due to rain being forecast all day with a risk of it continuing this evening. We’re sorry for any disappointment, but we hope to see you at our next events (Abberton Reservoir on Sat 27th Jan, Abberton Reservoir on Sat 17th Feb and Great Notley on Sat 24th Feb).
In this Live Astronomy event we take a look at a number of nearby (and not so nearby) galaxies. We show you live views of galaxies from right here in Essex, as well as discussing facts and physics about them. You can find out more about our Live Astronomy events on our Live Astronomy Information page or check the Event Calendar for the date and time of the next Live Astronomy event.
