Event description

Join members of Vectis Astronomical Society for their weekly observing session at their Newchurch Observatory. The public are more than welcome to turn up, groups larger than 6 should call ahead as the observatory can get busy, there's plenty of parking. No toilet facilities so remember to use the loo before you set off! There's no charge however donations welcome. If you're holidaying in the area what a great place to go take the kids for some evening stargazing!

The light pollution estimation for this site is due to it's proximity to a large agricultural establishment, however the skies are probably much darker.
