With this Instagram account we aim to share with a wider audience bits and pieces from our astronomical exhibition #TheLivingUniverse and provide followers with a glimpse into the immersive visual journeys from our state-of-the art planetarium. Our Instagram followers can expect to learn interesting facts about astronomy, to participate in fun quizzes, to discover the hottest and coolest astronomy news and to never again miss an astro-event in the sky or in our programme!
