Heaton Park Bowls Pavilion - Prestwich
Heaton Park, Prestwich, M25 2GT
All members of the public are extended a warm invitation to join the Heaton Park Astronomy Group for this special Thursday evening meeting at Heaton Park Bowls Pavilion.
The event coincides with BBC Stargazing Live and will focus on “Stargazing for Beginners”. There will be talks and presentations including how to find your way around the night sky and what can be seen this month and through the summer.
Hopefully the skies will be clear in which case there will be opportunity to look through telescopes at objects such as the Moon and the planet Jupiter.
There is no need to book for this event, simply turn up!
