Stargazing: This Saturday 25th February
From about 6pm onwards, the telescopes will be set up for everyone to look through. If the skies are clear you’ll be able to the cresent Moon, the planets Jupiter and Venus, as well as more distant objects like the Orion Nebula – a rich star-forming region over a thousand light-years away.
Also, if you have a telescope that you need assistance with, or are just looking for advice in getting started, we can help you out.
Everyone is welcome, so please come along. The night is free of charge, although there may be a site parking fee.
(Although, please be aware that we are dependent on clear weather – if it’s cloudy, we obviously won’t be able to see much!)
