Otford Village Memorial Hall
High Street, Otford, TN14 5PQ
Join astronomers from the Orpington Astronomical Society for this informal observing session at Otford Village Memorial Hall. On the third Thursday of most months, members meet to chat over a cup of tea before setting up their telescopes. The public is welcome to join them, and the meeting goes ahead no matter the weather. The location is excellent for stargazing with the adjacent recreation ground being protected from street lighting.
