Come and Join us - Visitors Welcome!
Observing the Night Sky
Airdrie Observatory is a fully-functioning and unique facility, and AAA are delighted to manage the facility on behalf of CultureNL. It is a great place to visit for all types of groups, societies and clubs and we use it throughout the year. Our dedicated Curators can provide advice, hints and tips on all manner of space-related questions. Whether you are a complete beginner or have an existing interest in astronomy, a visit to the Observatory can be a fascinating and rewarding experience.

"Planet of the Month - Earth"
Roy has given talks before showing how Mars and Venus have rock formations very like those on Earth and boldly stated that these features prove that flowing water once existed on those planets.
This talk is about how we have come to the conclusion that rock formations like this require the presence of water and other processes to be created. He will do this by giving a history of Geology and the many Scottish geologists who played a huge part in our current understanding of how Earth came to be the way it is. Pretty landscape pictures will be included!
