Free Stargazing at Millenium House

Friday 15th March 2019 from 19:00pm to 22:00pm

Millenium House - Pensilva

Princess Road, Pensilva, PL14 5NF


Description

Experience Bodmin Moor's glorious night sky with a free star gazing evening on Friday 15th March at Millennium House, Pensilva from 7pm until 10pm. A mix of activities are planned including a talk on Radio Telescope projects, a Magic Planet demonstration and, weather allowing, a stargazing session. Mars will due west at 8pm with a half Moon to the south. March is still a great time to catch Orion and a chance to see some of Leo's galaxies millions of light years away.

There is no charge to attend the event which has been organised by Cornwall Council and led by Caradon Observatory. Drinks will be available for purchase and there will be a charity box for any donations to Pensilva Health Centre and the Sterile Ward at Derriford Hospital.
