See our nearest neighbour in space using our 130 year old Great Equatorial Telescope as we enjoy an Evening With The Moon!

About

Take a look at our nearest neighbour in space with the Victorian-era Great Equatorial Telescope in this after-hours event at the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

Enjoy a planetarium show in the Peter Harrison Planetarium as you explore the night sky and head into the Great Equatorial Telescope dome to see the 130-year-old telescope in action, all presented by astronomers from the Royal Observatory.

In the event of poor weather, a tour of the telescope will replace the observing section of the evening.
