Purple Pack visited the Astronomy Centre near Todmorden as part of their Astronomy Activity Badge.

Split into two groups that swapped over during the night, the Cubs learnt all about planets and stars via a PowerPoint presentation.

A detailed explanation of telescopes of all shapes and sizes followed with a demonstration of one of the largest on-site in the dome shaped building.

Many members enjoyed “spying” on other members and their families with the “Camera Obscura” that is built into the main dome and is one of the biggest in the country.
