"Since my early childhood I have been fascinated by the planets, stars and asteroids, so I signed up for an "extracurricular" astronomy course. Over four evenings, I learned about the Observatory and how it works, using the telescope to look at the stars and even see a planet. It was fantastic to see everything for real rather than on television and I felt like a proper stargazer. We also visited the Planetarium with its depiction of the various planets. Now I know all about the skies above - well, almost anyway!"
