Chesterfield Barnett Observatory
Hastings Close, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, S41 8RH, East Midlands
Everyone is welcome to join the friendly and enthusiastic members of Chesterfield Astronomical Society at this one of their weekly Friday night observatory open evenings.
There is no need to book for this informal stargazing session — pop in if the weather looks good.
A small donation of £2 is asked to help maintain the observatory. Remember that these Friday night events are also member nights, so although visitors will be very welcome, some astronomers will also focus on their hobby!
