Treasure House Hosts ‘Stargazing An Introduction To The Night Sky’ With East Riding Astronomers

As part of a partnership with the East Riding Astronomers, the Treasure House has opened a new Community Exhibition called Stargazing. 

The exhibition, which can be found on the ground floor near the library, runs until the end of November. This is one of the best times of the year to see planets and stars, as it is one of the best viewing periods of the year.

It features amazing space photographs (astrophotography) taken by the group, tips on how to get into astronomy, as well as fascinating facts like how the universe is made up of more stars than grains of sand!

It is also possible for visitors to enjoy some fantastic views of the town while exploring the surprising distances between the planets with the ‘If the Sun was a pea’ activity that can be enjoyed in the Treasure House tower while also studying the surprising distances between the planets.

The East Riding Astronomers have produced a leaflet with information on how to get involved in astronomy and astronomy challenges for the year ahead.
