Trinity School Observatory
Strand Road, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA1 1JB
Everyone is welcome to join the Border Astronomical Society members for this one of their regular informal, friendly meetings at the Trinity School Observatory in Carlisle.
These meetings occur on the second and fourth Thursday of each month from September through April. We recommend popping along for a chat and using their large aperture 16″ reflecting telescope to view the Moon and planets.
Attending is free of charge and there’s no need to book; you are welcome to turn up on the night!
Please note that this has already taken place on 11/01/2024
