In the red Brick Auditorium
Let’s take a journey to explore our local star, the Sun, together with the eight planets of the solar system; some known to astronomers living thousands of years ago and others discovered more recently. We will learn about their moons together with the smaller bodies; the dwarf planets, asteroids, comets and meteors that complete our fascinating solar system.
