Description

Members of the public are invited to join astronomers from Abingdon Astronomical Society for this one of their regular monthly observing evenings at Frilford Heath Golf Club.

Please note that these events are weather dependent and operate on a "first clear night" basis. The event does not take place on each night in the date range -- only the first clear date when weather allows for observing.

It is important therefore that you check with the society to ensure if and when this event takes place!

- 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.


Organiser

This event is being organised by Abingdon 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!
