Join our Chinese Astronomy live planetarium show to explore topics in ancient and modern Chinese astronomy, including the Sun, Moon, stars and space exploration, guided through by an astronomer of the Royal Observatory Greenwich.

In this show, the astronomer will explore the links between astronomy and the Chinese calendar such as the phases of the Moon and how they relate to traditional festivals still celebrated by Chinese people today.

And no show on Chinese astronomy would be complete without a discussion of the latest achievements of the nation’s space programme, from the soft landing on the far side of the Moon to the mission to Mars.

While this show will be delivered in English, make sure to take a look at our Bilingual Families planetarium shows that are delivered in a variety of languages.
