Rooftop Astronomy at The Culpeper

Dec 09 2019 20:00 - 23:00

The Culpeper, 40 Commercial St, E1 6LP London

In honour of our namesake, the controversial astrologist and herbalist Nicholas Culpeper, we’re hosting an evening tour of the night sky from our rooftop. We’ll be stopping by a couple of planets and constellations on the way, all guided by astronomy experts, Dark Sky Wales. Using professional high strength telescopic equipment, this will be a night you won’t forget

Everyone is invited to the rooftop to relax and take in the sights before the night gets properly underway. Shortly after guests will get to enjoy a main course meal and a sweet treat put on by The Culpeper Kitchen.

After dining, Martin will give a brief explanation of the cosmos, after which we’ll begin observing. With the help of a pretty hefty Dobsonian telescope, we’ll take a tour of Saturn and Mars, stopping by a couple of nebulae and star clusters along the way.
