About this event

What’s the difference between an asteroid and a comet? Join us for a comet-making demonstration and find out more about these cosmic travelers and current missions studying them.

During your 60-minute visit you will have 30 minutes to explore the exhibits in our Cosmic Courtyard Gallery. The other 30 minutes will be spent in our Observatory with a tour of our ½ metre Cassegrain telescope and a 15-minute cooking up a comet demonstration. (*Please note: if you are visiting during daylight hours you won't be able to look through the telescope.*)

This program is recommended for families with children ages 8+. Children must be accompanied by adults. One ticket must be purchased for each member of your group and groups can have a maximum of 4 people.

We recommend that you dress warmly as the Observatory can be cold. Please arrive early to allow time for check-in.
