Rollright Stones Ancient Monument
Little Rollright, Chipping Norton, OX7 5QB
Join the members of Chipping Norton Amateur Astronomy Group for this special dark skies observing event. The event takes place at the time of a new moon and this means the skies will be exceptionally dark from this remote location. There will be plenty of telescopes to look through if you haven’t got your own. This event is weather permitting so keep an eye on the forecast and contact the event organisers if you are unsure if it’s going ahead. Wrap up warm, ensure you take everything you might need (thermos of hot chocolate perhaps) and have fun! Clear skies!
Please note that this event has already taken place on 25/03/2017
