Public Observing at Ruislip Lido – BBC Stargazing Live 2017

Friday 31st March 2017 from 20:00pm to Sunday 2nd April 2017 22:00pm

Ruislip Lido

Reservoir Road, Ruislip, HA4 7TY


Everyone is invited to join astronomers from West of London Astronomical Society (WOLAS) for this public stargazing event at Ruislip Lido. Organised to coincide with BBC Stargazing Live 2017 and running across three evenings the society members will be on hand with their telescopes. The crescent moon will look awesome through a scope and the location at the lido is dark enough to also view some of the brighter galaxies. This event is free of charge, the tea rooms will be open and there are facilities on site. This event will only go ahead if weather permits and event organisers ask that you check the WOLAS website homepage before setting off.


- This event is weather dependent and will only take place if the skies are clear enough for observing. It is therefore necessary to check the weather forecast and confirm with the event organisers that this event is going ahead.


This event is being organised by West Of London Astronomical Society who should be contacted if you have any queries. We highly recommend you confirm this event is indeed going ahead before travelling. If you do attend it would be fantastic if you could let the organiser know you found them via Go Stargazing!


Please contact West Of London Astronomical Society directly for more details regarding this event or, if appropriate, contact the event venue.
