Everyone is invited to join the welcoming members of Newcastle Astronomical Society for this one of their monthly meetings to include stargazing and observing through telescopes should weather permit. Although the location itself is near to the heart of Newcastle city centre it is still readily possible to view the moon, planets and brighter deep-sky objects through telescopes despite local light pollution.
