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.

What's on
