Everyone is welcome to join the members of Bishop Auckland Astronomical Society for this special “Moonwatch” event at Bradley Burn. After a short introduction you’ll be taken outside for a session observing through telescopes. The moon looks fabulous through a telescope — you’ll be able to see craters, mountains and vast plains that were once molten lava. The scopes will be turned towards the planets Venus and Mars and various deep sky objects including star clusters and galaxies. If the weather spoils plans for observing various astronomical presentations will be held indoors instead. Adults £3 Children (under 16) £1 payable on the door — great value for all the family and a great opportunity to go stargazing!
Please note that this event has already taken place on 08/03/2017
