Event description

Members of the public are invited to join Thurrock Astronomy Society for an evening of stargazing.  The event will take place on the first clear night within the date range and at a location decided at that time.

Please note that the event may not be held at the Methodist Hall but instead another location nearby.  The event start time is also subject to change.

The dates have been chosen to coincide with a new moon so that they are at their darkest.

If you would like to attend please contact the event organiser at least 24 hours before who will then update you as to whether the event is going ahead, at what time and where!

First clear night

Event occurs on the first clear night during the date range thus maximising chances of stargazing, however being weather dependent means short notice.
