On Wednesday 21st at the Gilbert White Field Studies Centre the team will be hosting an Introductory Astronomy Night. We invite you to explore the night sky with a short topical talk on astronomy and an exploration of the night sky lead by Graham Bryant from the Hampshire Astronomical Group showing you highlights to look out for in your local skies.

The following day the museum is hosting an exciting opportunity to involve the whole family with their Family Space Explorer sessions. These family friendly astronomy taster sessions are in three parts, as you travel through space in a giant inflatable dome with Bob Mizon, learn about Meteors with our education team and explore night skies above Selborne with Graham Bryant from the Hampshire Astronomical Group.
