Rutherford Appleton Laboratory Didcot
Chilton OX11 0QX
Stargazing at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory.
The 2019 Stargazing at RAL will have plenty of activities for the whole family, whatever the weather. There’ll be meteorites, rocket building, comet making, face-painting, a series of fascinating talks, robots and of course stargazing. We’ll have some experts on hand to explain how they use the Diamond Light Source to find out more about meteorites and comets, and you’ll be able to visit the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source to learn how we use particle accelerators to learn more about space.
Planetarium shows will run throughout the evening, but places on these are limited owing to the size of our planetaria, and so are allocated by lottery.
Once the event is fully booked, you will be able to sign up to our waiting list. Tickets will be released at 07:00, 13:00 and 19:00 on Friday 11 January 2019. The tickets released at 07:00 and 13:00 are fully booked – the next tickets will be released at 19:00.
