Join the Orpington Astronomical Society astronomers 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 (prospective new Members) 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 protected from street lighting.
