Star gazing sessions are presented almost every night throughout the year. Remember to "dress up for the occasion". Evenings are cool so in order for you to enjoy the program more thoroughly, being warmly dressed is essential.
Please always confirm the starting times when booking for Star Gazing and note the show is two hours long. You as the star gazer are first treated with an indoor presentation on a three meter size screen with explanations of the constellations and size of the universe. A short DVD about Sutherland is also shown. Astronomy related posters and books including Wayne Mitchell's STAR GAZER'S DEEP SPACE ATLAS will be on display.
Once you are outside, Jurg uses a very powerful laser to point out the stars and different constellations as well as to teach you hoe to find South with the aid of the Southern Cross and Magellan clouds before looking physically through one of the five telescopes.
