The Universe for Beginners

Astronomy night classes return to our fulldome digital Planetarium for April 2018! We'll guide you expertly through the night sky, learning the major constellations as we go, before journeying into space and exploring the vast cosmos.

This night class is for adults only, and will run on Monday nights 7-9pm, from 9 April 2018, for four weeks. Each 2-hour class will be delivered by Steve Owens of the Crawick Multiverse together with our Planetarium team.

There's no formal assessment or homework; simply come along to marvel at the beauty of our universe, and relax under the glittering stars of our Planetarium.

About the Planetarium


The Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre has been upgraded to a spectacular, state-of-the-art, fulldome digital projection system (what a mouthful!). Our shows are live presenter-led or film based to take you on a journey through the solar system, into the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond, offering a truly out-of-this-world experience. Our spectacular full dome films display 360 degrees across the 15-metre hemispherical dome of the planetarium. It really is spellbinding stuff.
