World Space Party comes to Eldon House

On April 12th, 1961, Yuri Gagarin was the first human in space. Yuri’s Night, also called the “World Space Party”, has become a global celebration of space and spaceflight, commemorating the anniversary of both Gagarin’s first orbital flight, as well as the first Space Shuttle launch, which also took place on April 12th, exactly twenty years later, in 1981.
To celebrate Yuri’s Night, Eldon House has organized an evening of period stargazing on April 12th, 2015, from 8:00PM to 10:30PM, as part of a series of events commemorating the 180th Anniversary of Eldon House. Click here for more information
