Are we alone?
The question that has been asked through the centuries.
To even begin to answer this question we first need to address a few others.
What is life?
What does life need to survive?
What difficulties does life face out there?
Where should we look?
Please be aware, when observing is possible, temperatures can be severe and the ground underfoot can be soft and wet, to ensure your own comfort, please wear suitable attire.
Join local astronomer Liam Reid for an evening of astronomy and stargazing from the wonderfully dark village of Stonehaugh.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 22/01/2021
