Join a team of planetary scientists from the Department of Physics as they celebrate International Observe the Moon Night, which takes place in October each year.

At this event, the experts will be on hand to answer your Moon-based questions. There will also be telescopes for observing the Moon and some hands-on activities.

No need to book. This is a drop-in activity (expect to spend around 20 minutes at the event). Please just come by to say hello, but check the weather update before you travel.
