Astronomy in the City

Astronomy in the City is a free stargazing event run by members of the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation. Several times a year telescopes are set up somewhere in Portsmouth for members of the public to view the stars and chat to astrophysicists about stargazing, the Universe, or being a scientist.

Update 22 March 2013 17:00 Unfortunately rain has forced us to cancel Astronomy in the City again. We hope that everyone who came on Tuesday enjoyed the event and hope to run it again soon.

The last Astronomy in the City ran as part of National Science and Engineering Week 2013. The ICG were at the Gunwharf Quays Plaza on clear nights on the 18th-22nd March, 6.30-8pm each night, looking at the Moon, Jupiter and more.

This event is obviously weather dependent so check back here or on our facebook page and twitter feed to see if it's on before coming down. In the meantime, you can read about our last Astronomy in the City event on our news page.
