Armagh Planetarium’s Christmas card competition has been going from strength to strength.  Now in its third year, we have once again been overwhelmed by the number of entries, the creativeness and talent that has been displayed.

Mixing the theme of space and Christmas we have had Santa giving present to aliens, Christmas trees blasting off into space, reindeers landing on the Moon and even Santa getting a brand new rocket sleigh!

All the entries are on display at the Planetarium for the duration of the Christmas holidays.
