Join members from Rosliston Astronomy Group for this one of their regular monthly "Introducing Astronomy" meetings. These events take place on the second Friday of most months (dates are subject to change). Members of the public can turn up to their first meeting for a small fee at which time they will be asked to consider joining the group so to attend future sessions. The event includes how to find your way around the night sky and help with telescopes and equipment as well as observing if weather conditions permit.

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

- Event run by a local astronomical society often involving an in-depth presentation by a guest speaker often with observing afterwards if weather permits. Most societies welcome members of the public to join them sometimes for a small fee or donation.
