Space Explorers

The Space Explorers package provides Scouting and Guiding groups (such as Rainbows, Beavers, Brownies, Cubs, Guides, Scouts, Rangers and Explorers) with a fantastic and exciting programme to help fulfill different astronomy-related badges. Leaders can book a planetarium show plus a workshop suited to the age range of their group.

Astronomy and Islam Mornings

Our Astronomy and Islam Mornings are held before the predicted sighting of the next New Crescent Moon. A Royal Observatory Greenwich astronomer will guide you through the stars in our special planetarium show to help you do everything from observe the New Crescent Moon, learn how Arabic astronomers helped lay the foundation of modern astronomy, go over different tales of Arabic constellations and discover instruments built for navigation and prayer.
