Heaton Park Astronomy Group Stargazing for Beginners

Thursday 9th January 2020 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Heaton Park Bowls Pavilion - Prestwich

Heaton Park, Prestwich, M25 2GT


If you got a new telescope for Christmas or you are struggling with the one you've got, we can help you set it up! We'll be having talks on what astronomy is all about, what there is to see and finding your way around the night sky. And, if it's a clear night, you’ll be able to look through the telescopes set up outside and we'll point out the constellations to you. Free, with voluntary donations for hot drinks and biscuits. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

- Event includes an astronomy related presentation or talk.

- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
