Birth Life and Death.
Not words you might associate with a star.
But everything has a beginning a middle and an end, even stars.
Join us as we look at how a star is born, how it does what it does throughout its’ life and what can become of them at the end.
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 10/01/2021
