Come and explore the wonders of the autumn night sky with members of the Whitby and District Astronomical Society. Weather permitting, outside we shall be concentrating on deep sky objects, with Mars and Saturn being the initial targets before they set. We then turn our attention to observing and tracking down star clusters, nebulae, dying stars, galaxies etc.
