Rosse Observatory Open Night

Tuesday 26th December 2017 from 19:30pm to 21:30pm

Rosse Observatory

Carleton Road, Pontefract, WF8 3RJ


Description

You are invited to join members of West Yorkshire Astronomical Society for this one of their regular open evenings at Rosse Observatory.

Tuesday evenings are primarily for members and tend to be more formal, Friday evenings are more social and are aimed at beginners including younger astronomers.

The observatory offers a classroom area for presentations in case it's cloudy.  When the skies are clear there are some great views to be had through their newly installed large reflecting telescope, this despite some local light pollution.

Small entrance fee for adults, children free!  These events make for a great opportunity to visit your local observatory and go stargazing!

Please do check in advance that the event is going ahead and also to confirm the start time as these can vary throughout the year.

- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.

- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
