It is verrrrrrry cold in winter, but if you put on all your warmest woollies and come out,

Jupiter and Saturn are in the evening sky now, and the centre of our Milky Way galaxy is overhead.
In the cosy Baker Hall, our new show ROSETTA.
Rosetta was a space probe built by the European Space Agency launched on 2 March 2004. Along with Philae, its lander module, Rosetta performed a detailed study of comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko. Rosetta is a film about the first landing of a satellite on a Comet. The film is introduced by Klim Ivanovych Churyumov who along with Svetlana Ivanovna Gerasimenko, discovered the comet.
Outside an OPEN FIRE and inside warm drinks to keep you warm whilst viewing our
spectacular winter night sky. The viewing is best in winter when there is a frost in the air, the clarity of
objects is quite stunning. The Emu, near the centre of our Milky Way galaxy, is a beautiful object to observe.
