Join the members of Heaton Park Astronomy Group for this special beginners stargazing event. If it’s clear there will be telescopes setup outside and you’ll be given a guided tour of the constellations. Two presentations will also be offered, one on navigating the night sky and another discussing dark sky places and the adverse effect of light pollution. A great opportunity to get out under starry skies!
