Come and have some fun with the sun at the Dortwood Observatory – where you can enjoy a solar experience and see Earth’s “star” (the sun) in all its glory. There will be several solar-filtered telescopes and binoculars for safe viewing. Astronomy books and videos await in the visitors' centre. Don’t miss the chance to learn with fellow space enthusiasts!
