Published details today here, of the special SPA Planetarium show, at the Greenwich Observatory in May.

SPA Planetarium Event details

Free entry for SPA members, plus one guest each.

With the normal £6 admission charge per adult, it's worth joining the SPA just for this!

Just bringing this to the top, as our Planetarium event is tomorrow morning :wink:

If you're going to Greenwich, please remember it's 9.45am sharp, for the start. Latecomers will not be let in!

Hi Rosanella,

Glad you made it. Skillful timing on your part. Hope you enjoyed it (I did)

I suspect the official start-time, made allowance for a little, local transport difficulty :)

All the best,
Kevin

PS.. Just popped a few photos from Saturday's event onto my blog

Yes, I enjoyed the morning out watching the night sky during the day :) I'm a great fan of the Planetarium because it's the only chance I get to look at a proper starry night. After the show, I didn't feel like leaving too soon and stayed watching another show 'Invaders of Mars'.

I looked at your blog and noticed a section about 'Astronomy with Binoculars', something of interest to me since I only observe with binoculars and use robotic telescopes. Thank you for that :-)
