St. Columb Major Academy
Newquay Road, St. Columb Major, TR9 6RW
Throughout the winter months the Kernow Astronomers meet at St Columb Major Academy for a practical observing night on the first Thursday of each month. If conditions allow they’ll be outside in the rear playground which being away from lights makes an excellent dark site for stargazing. New-members are always welcome!
