As the nights grow longer, magnificently-ringed planet Saturn moves into the sunset glow, with not far behind to the south-west. Giant gas planet Jupiter makes spectacular, viewing, rising steadily throughout Autumn in the pre-dawn eastern skies.
Come to the Planetarium for a guided tour of some of the celestial wonders which are on view during the Autumn months. Come to the Planetarium to understand how eruptions on the Sun cause displays of the Northern Lights, and how these are visible from the ground as faint glows, coloured arcs or, at their most spectacular, coloured rays and bands of auroral light dancing back and forth across the night sky.
