The Observatory

Explore the wonders of the tropical night sky with the help of the world’s largest robotic telescope!

‘The Observatory’ exhibit was provided and funded by Liverpool John Moores University, Astrophysics Research Institute and the National Schools' Observatory.  

You can interact with the computer generated image using a touch screen ‘POD’ (Personal Observation Deck) to surf the sky and discover thousands of stars. Why not join up the stars to map out constellations and view objects in our solar system such as Mars and Jupiter?
