Apollo Visitors

We have had the pleasure of welcoming 3 Apollo astronauts to visit us here in Airdrie Observatory.
With thanks to Aileen Malone, from Walk With Destiny, you can now look through the same telescope as Colonel Al Wordon from Apollo 15, Stand in the footsteps of Apollo 16 Moonwalker, Charlie Duke, or have your picture taken next to Gemini 11 and Apollo 12 astronaut, Dick Gordon's favourite part of our Mural.

Why not ask our curators or one of the observatory assistants to show you where the Astronauts have signed our visitors book!
