This night is dedicated to observing our largest neighbour in the universe – The Andromeda Galaxy.
On a clear moonless night, this object is the most distant thing you can see with the unaided eye, it appears as a faint smudge of light in only the darkest of skies.
At a distance of 2.5 million light-years away this galaxy is massive, containing over 1 trillion stars and trillions of planets.
With stunning graphics, high-resolution telescopes and sophisticated cameras we get up close and personal to this wonderful galaxy. Bring your cameras too as Gary will show you how to get great pictures of this galaxy!
