Space Lates – Backyard Astronomy

For this Space Lates, we’re looking at how you can get involved in astronomy, from simple garden viewing, the equipment to use, what to look for and how to photograph the night sky. We’ve curated a special evening packed with guest speakers, interactive workshops, planetarium shows, stargazing, and live demos. Explore our galleries after-hours and finish your evening with a live astronomy session with Leicester Astronomical Society (weather permitting).
