Stargazing isn’t just for the countryside – Nature’s wonders can be seen through telescopes right here in Portsmouth!
As a part of National Science and Engineering Week, astrophysicists from the University of Portsmouth’s Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation will be hanging out at Gunwharf Quays. Come use our telescopes to get a closer look at craters on the Moon or the stellar nursery of the Orion Nebula. Chat with us about what interests you, and we’ll try to answer all of your questions about stargazing, the Universe, or being a scientist.
Look for us at Gunwharf Quays by the canal near Bar 38.
Time: 18:30-20:00 on 14 March (Albert Einstein’s birthday). This event may be canceled or rescheduled due to poor weather conditions. Please check this page for updates or follow @ChazShapiro on Twitter ( look for #AstronomyInTheCity )
