Launch of new photograph exhibit, free Christmas show and stargazing
The year 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of when European astronomers headed south, to Chile, determined to build the most powerful ground-based telescopes in the world and founded ESO (European Southern Observatory).
Armagh Planetarium is celebrating this anniversary by launching a new gallery exhibition. Around 40 visually stunning images have been erected with captions, showcasing celestial objects such as galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters as seen by ESO’s observatories, as well as beautiful images of the observatories themselves, which are located in some of the most unusual places on Earth.
Join us for our launch night on Tuesday 4th December 2012 where we will unveil our gallery. You will also have the opportunity to see our Christmas theatre show “Mystery of the Christmas Star” FREE and if the skies are clear we will be observing the wonders of the December night sky.
Please note that spaces for the FREE theatre show are limited so pre-booking is essential. Call us on 028 3752 3689.
