Upcoming Astronomy Events
As a service to our community, Sky & Telescope lists astronomy-related events, including star parties, observatory public nights, astronomy talks, and more. Star parties offer dark skies and astronomical fellowship and often cater to families and feature special activities for kids. Public nights give the general public a chance to view the sky through large telescopes, and public talks are a great place to learn the fundamentals of the science and the craft.
You’ll also see online events offered here.

Museum of the Moon at Durham Cathedral
November 9, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm GMT$15.00
Join local astronomers Neill Sanders and Dr Fred from Go Stargazing and witness the incredible spectacle that is Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon in the stunning location of Durham Cathedral.
Enjoy a presentation about the Moon, the brightest object in the night sky, so bright that astronomers even consider it a source of natural light pollution!
Then, weather permitting, and for those who wish to scale the 325 steps, enjoy a laser-guided tour of the night sky from atop the Cathedral tower. It may be possible to observe the planets Jupiter and Saturn through a telescope too. Whatever the weather, stunning night-time views across the City are guaranteed!
