Expert tuition from the Grassholme Observatory team of astronomers, as they take you on a journey centred around the Aurora Borealis. On certain nights throughout the year, you may even see the Aurora Borealis from Grassholme. It’s visible in the North Pennine skies, but the conditions have to be right to see them and those conditions can be very rare indeed. Whilst we cannot guarantee you will see them, you will certainly leave well informed on how to spot them in future, and what exactly they are. The event will begin with a personal welcome from Grassholme’s astronomer, Gary Fildes. After the welcome, Gary and the team will escort you into the new, state-of-the-art classroom, which has a cosy feel, and high definition (HD) projection system.
