Putting the WOW factor into Science and Space!

Join Essex Wildlife Trust, North Essex Astronomical Society and Andrew Green Director of the StarDome for an evening that will be truly out of this universe! 

StarDome is one of the longest established mobile planetarium businesses in the UK (20+ years). At StarDome they know how important it isto inspire people of all ages. They want you to leave their shows with a feeling of inspiration, of knowledge and of wanting to know more

The planetarium experience is one that people young and old alike will remember for many years. When the dome lights dim to a gasp from the audience you will see 3000 stars appear in a perfect night sky free from light pollution.

Trace constellation patterns, find star clusters, galaxies and planets.A whirling, dizzying spin then takes you to the North pole to find the North star, then back to our home and then to the Equator.

Director & Senior Lecturer, Andrew Green, has been involved in astronomy & space for over 40 years, starting out as a 7 year old child fascinated by meteorites and astronauts. His passion for the subjects are second to none and he attends many Astronomy & Space events not just here in the UK but world wide.

If the weather permits NEAS members will be manning scopes so that the night stars can be seen on the evening too.
