Special events at Astrofarm in 2018

Celebrating 2 super blue moons in 2018, Astrofarm presents an evening of everything about our Moon! On the nights of the supermoons in January and March (both the 31st), the 2 evenings from 8.00 pm to midnight, will be a mix of presentations about moon phases, the effect of the moon on the Earth and understanding a supermoon,  followed by observing, photography and sketching. We will provide tea, coffee, chocolate and cake and promise a fun evening in addition to some serious learning! €20 per person and bookings to Sue at

We have our annual Messier Marathon Challenge from the 16th to the 19th of March with the choice of joining us for the night or for dinner, bed & breakfast and the all-night challenge. We will serve breakfast all day so no need to get up if you have been up all night! Please note that we have limited availability so don't leave it too late! For more information or to book please email Sue at
