The Norman Lockyer Observatory in Sidmouth, Devon is a historic working optical observatory and an educational centre for science, especially astronomy, meteorology, amateur radio and sciences of the coast and countryside.
During the visit there will be a planetarium presentation, and a tour of the domes and their historic telescopes. In addition there may be a talk in the lecture theatre and a demonstration of the Met station, showing satellite images and automatic weather recording, or the radio room. There are interesting displays in the Exhibition Area. A visit takes roughly 2 hours, but could be longer on a clear night if the telescopes are in use. In that case we may have an opportunity for some observations.
The visit will be free to branch members and their guests, but spaces are limited and advance booking is required. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a space.
