Join the friendly and enthusiastic members of Heaton Park Astronomy Group for this special beginners event. If you got a new telescope for Christmas take it along and they will be happy to help you set it up! As well as talks on finding your way around the night sky and what there is to see, if it’s a clear night you’ll be able to look through the telescopes set up outside and be guided around the constellations. This is a free event with voluntary donations for hot drinks and biscuits. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
