Event details

Take a tour of the night sky in Live Skies.
 

Our presenters take you on a tour of tonight's sky in the North's largest planetarium.


Explore a sky full of stars and discover planets that can be viewed from Earth without the need for any fancy equipment.

Live Skies helps all ages enjoy space by learning a little more about what you can see when you look up.
 

 

Live Skies shows are held every Saturday and Sunday during term-time at 4.00pm, and on Bank Holidays and every day during school holidays at 5.00pm. 

 

All Live Skies shows are included in your Science Centre admission.
