October 2013 Stargazing Evening

CO74780_01 stars LOUISE SMITHOn the evening of Saturday 12th October, we return to Great Notley Country Park in Braintree for a night of stargazing.

From 6pm to 9pm, NEAS will be at the park with a selection of telescopes set up for you to look through

If the skies are clear you’ll be able to observe the Moon, there may also be the chance to see some deep-sky objects and we’ll also try to point out some constellations to you.

We’ll also try to answer any questions you might have, and give advice about how to start out with astronomy.

Everyone is welcome to come along and view through our telescopes. The night is free of charge. Please park in the site’s public car park (there may be a site car parking fee) which will remain open until 9pm. Details of how to find the site are on our Stargazing page here.

We will be set up behind the Discovery Centre building, so just following the walkway round to find us.

Please be aware that we are dependent on clear weather. If it is cloudy you obviously may not get to see anything! And if it’s really raining we will likely call off the event – so please use common sense before setting out. We will still have a couple of members on site in case you have any questions.
