Event details

Discover what Earth looks from space in this family-friendly planetarium show.


We know that sending satellites into space allows us to explore the cosmos and increase our understanding of the Universe. But did you know that there are some satellites that look down on Earth?

Such satellites give unprecedented detail of the surface of our planet; information from the sensors allow us to see changes over time, including the impact that humans have on our world, and even let us monitor groups of animals in remote locations.

Please note that during term time before 2.00pm the planetarium can be busy with school visits. To avoid disappointment, please call us on the day of your visit.

The planetarium is equipped with an analogue induction loop and has spaces for wheelchairs.

During busy times, we request that you visit the planetarium, Science Theatre and Motion Ride once - this is to allow other visitors to enjoy the experience too. Thanks for your consideration.
