Two local experts will share tips and tricks on enjoying the night sky from your back garden and beyond. They will introduce you to the astronomical highlights coming up throughout 2023, the best kit for observing and explore the techniques needed to get the most out of your observing time.
There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, and we encourage attendees to send in their questions about anything to do with Space for our experts to answer on the night. Please email your questions to Clare at [email protected].
