On the 11th and 12th of January, you are invited to visit Seethng to participate in #100HoursOfAstronomy as organised by the International Astronomical Union. 

As well as an excellent, experienced observer giving a talk on the "Most Mysterious Star in our Galaxy" we will have our friendly volunteers avalible to help you observe the wonderful night skies from South Norfolk.

As ever, if the skies are clear, we will have domes open for you to look through and telescopes on the pads to observe from too.

Doors open at 7:30 with talks starting at 8:00, unless the room fills up earlier, in which case the talk will start sooner and depending on numbers could be repeated. Admission is Adults £3.00 Adult members £2.00 All Children £1.50.  Teas and coffee are available at the end of the talk and there will be a chance to observe through the telescopes, if the skies are clear.

Talks vary in length but generally last approximately 40 minutes and are aimed at those with a general interest in astronomy. Children are welcome (recommend from about 8 years upwards) 

Do please join us for this special #IAU100 event at Seething Observatory.
