13 November, Leicester - Night at the Museum

This just received from the National Space Centre in Leicester:

Night @ the Museum 2
Friday 13 November 6pm-9pm

Following three sell out events in 2009 the National Space Centre and Leicester Astronomical Society are inviting visitors to brave the elements and step outside for a night of astronomy at the centre next week.

Starting with a tour through the night sky in the warmth of the UK’s largest planetarium, prior to taking a journey outside to take an in-depth look at the real thing, this event is an ideal opportunity for families, enthusiast or those just looking for something a little different to do on a Friday night, to come along and have fun with the planets and stars surrounding us.

For the first time the whole centre will also be open for visitors to enjoy with loads of extra activities planned including never before seen artefacts from the vaults, build your very own constellation viewer in the craft sessions and of course experts on hand to help anybody looking at starting out in astronomy.

Malika Andress, Marketing Manager at the National Space Centre, said “An Astronomy Night is something we have been asked for by hundreds of our visitors, who are keen to find out more. Working with Leicester Astronomical Society and the Space Now team, we will have experts on hand to explain the equipment being used, what people can see and how to take these skills home with them to keep on enjoying astronomy.”

“We have restricted the number of tickets available so that people who come along will all get an opportunity to participate in all the activities, including the actual telescope sessions outside. Of course this also means that visitors will get a unique experience of the whole of the National Space Centre with only a handful of people in it, something that is normally only experienced by staff.”

Anybody interested in attending on 13 November, should either drop into the National Space Centre in advance to purchase tickets or call the booking team on 0116 258 2111. Tickets are just £8 and include entry to the whole centre and the additional activities. The event runs from 6pm to 9pm and is subject to change dependant on the weather.
