Beacon Hill Observatory
Montgomery Road, Cleethorpes, DN35
Everyone is invited to join astronomers from Cleethorpes & District Astronomical Society for this one of their monthly Friday evening beginners sessions that run from September through May. (We believe these events take place on the third Friday of each month).
The sessions are ideal for absolute beginners and novices and will cover a wide variety of topics including an introduction to finding your way around the night sky, learning about various deep sky objects and observing them using telescopes (weather permitting).
If you have a telescope of your own you are very welcome to bring it along. The cost for each session is only £2 for adults and £1 for children. Please contact the John at the Society for more details.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 19/02/2021
For full details on how to attend this event, including how to book, please see the event's official website.Visit event website
