Once a month, the Abingdon Astronomical Society holds an observing evening near the driving range at Frilford Heath Golf Club.
The Society is keen to encourage those with an interest in the night sky to look through Member’s telescopes, so if you have never looked through a telescope before this is a wonderful opportunity. If you have a telescope or binoculars you are welcome to bring them along.
This event is weather-dependent and held on a first-clear-night basis on the dates indicated. Only one session occurs in the date range; if the weather is poor on the first date, the event moves to the second date, and then to the third. Updates are given via the Society’s website, Facebook page and Twitter around 6:30 p.m each day.
See the Society’s observing page on their website to understand how this works and to join their free mailing list for notifications.
