Join friendly astronomers from the Bedford Astronomical Society for an evening of observing at Bedford School’s Piazzi Smyth Observatory. The facility houses a large 16″ Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope that offers fantastic views.

These events are held every Wednesday between October and April and go ahead only when the weather is clear — check the group’s Twitter feed for announcements. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Note that there may not be an observing session on the last Wednesday of each month if the group is hosting one of their regular speaker meetings.
