Talk, Fri 2 Nov 2018, £6-£10




Church Road,


Due to popular demand, we have managed to book Andrew and his StarDome again this year. Join Essex Wildlife Trust, North Essex Astronomical Society and Andrew Green Director of the StarDome for an evening that will be truly out of this universe on Friday 2nd November.

The planetarium experience is one that people young and old alike will remember for many years. When the dome lights dim to a gasp from the audience you will see 3000 stars appear in a perfect night sky free from light pollution.

If the weather permits NEAS members will be manning scopes so that the night stars can be seen on the evening too.

Session one
StarDome 7.30 – 8.15
Space talk 8.15 – 8.45
Stargazing with NEAS 8.45 – 9.30 (weather permitting)

Session two
StarDome 8.30 – 9.15
Space talk 9.15 – 9.45
