Spend an evening under the stars at Blashford Lakes with members from Fordingbridge Astronomers. Begin indoors with an introductory talk on the sky tonight, before heading outside to observe the Autumn constellations. Coinciding with the dark of the moon, as long as it’s clear the stars should be spectacular!
In the event of cloud an extended talk and indoor demonstration of telescopes and astro-software will be available. All proceeds from the event will be split between HIWWT and Fordingbridge Astronomers. Booking essential. Suitable for age 8 years and over.
