Stars over the Botanics

  • Botanic Gardens 730D Great Western Road Glasgow, Scotland, G12 0UE United Kingdom (map)

Come and join astronomers from the Astronomical Society of Glasgow (ASG) for an evening of stargazing!

Stars Over the Botanics is a chance for the public to come along and talk to some astronomers, and get the chance to have a look at some of the wonders in the heavens above. We'll have a number of telescopes available for you to look through, all operated by our Astronomers, so you can be sure there will be something interesting to see. Whether it's the Moon, the Planets, or some deep sky objects, if it's there, we'll find it for you.

On the off chance that the weather is cloudy (or even raining), we have a programme of lectures and talks available, all in the comfort and surroundings of the Botanic Gardens' Kibble Palace. Using planetarium software, we can take you on a tour of the universe, show you the moon in fantastic detail, or show you some of the many phenomenon of the sky and sun like noctilucent clouds.

Cost: £4 adult, £2 child

Gates open at 7.15pm. Tickets on the gate.
