Sarah Abotsi-Masters
27 July 2018
Time: 6:30pm until 8:30pm

Come and enjoy a spectacular night-time show! Not only a total lunar eclipse, but a possible 4 planets (Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mars) on view! What’s more, Mars will be at opposition, meaning it will be directly opposite the Sun and therefore at its brightest, and also at its closest point to Earth since 2003!

Bring your friends and relax in the compound of the only fixed planetarium across West, Central and East Africa. Dodge the traffic and enjoy mellow music while viewing the wonders of the night sky! Refreshments will be on sale.

Date: Friday 27th July 2018


Time: 6:30 to 8:30pm – Telescope and naked eye viewing of the moon, planets (Mars, Saturn, Jupiter and Venus) and constellations (weather permitting)
