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. They also reveal some of the science behind our Moon and show stunning images from the Chinese mission that landed on the far side of the Moon in early 2019.

But you don't need the budget of a national space agency - our night sky is for everyone. Live Skies helps young or old share our enjoyment of space by finding out a little more about what you 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 show are included in your Science Centre admission.
