Education Barn - Chambers Farm Wood, Market Rasen, LN8 5JR
Join astronomer Richard Darn for this big end of year event - the Christmas Start Party, complete with mulled wine and mince pies! The winter moon will light up the 900 acre woodland, and we'll show you how to take pictures of its mountains and craters with your smartphone. We will also take a tour of the lovely winter constellations and use telescopes to spy distant star clusters and colourful double stars. But we'll start with a colourful talk to set the scene in the warm education barn and also enjoy mulled wine, juice and mince pies - all included in the ticket price.
- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.
- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
