Putting the WOW factor into Science and Space!
Join Essex Wildlife Trust, North Essex Astronomical Society and Andrew Green Director of the StarDome for an evening that will be truly out of this universe on Friday 15th September!
The planetarium experience is one that people young and old alike will remember for many years. When the dome lights dim to a gasp from the audience you will see 3000 stars appear in a perfect night sky free from light pollution.
If the weather permits NEAS members will be manning scopes so that the night stars can be seen on the evening too.
