Hosts were lovely and informative. We got to see the moon and Saturn through the telescopes and listen to a presentation which was very interesting. Kids loved it. Saturn is amazing! Makes you realise how small we are in the universe!

Inspiring passion for the stars. John and his wife were lovely hosts with a family approach. Suitable for children 6 and above so they can focus through a telescope. Amazing to see Saturn and Jupiter.
