Out Of This World: Moons
You've heard loads about the planets - how about we talk about some moons?
In this morning of science and discovery, we'll begin by travelling across the solar system in our planetarium - from our nearest neighbour, through the vast moons of Jupiter, all the way to the icy moons of Neptune and beyond. Then, join us for an interactive workshop as we discover more about moons you know, and some you may not have heard of! And throughout you'll have the chance to ask all your burning questions about space and astronomy.
Recommended for ages 7+

Plan your visit
The morning will begin with a planetarium show, lasting up to 30 minutes. Following this, there will be a workshop, lasting up to 45 minutes.
The planetarium is part of the Royal Observatory, at the top of a hill with spectacular views across London. Please allow enough time to get to us and aim to arrive at least 15 minutes before the show’s start time, as latecomers cannot be admitted. Any latecomers will be able to join in with the workshop after the show though.
Pushchairs are not allowed into the planetarium itself but there is a designated buggy park in the foyer.
You do not need a Royal Observatory ticket to visit the Planetarium. However, if you would also like to visit the historic observatory then you can book a separate ticket here.
