Members of the public are invited to join astronomers from Flamsteed Astronomical Society for an evening of observing on Blackheath Common. The meet-up point is just to the North of Talbot Place with free parking after 6:30pm. Note that these events are weather dependent -- if the weather is poor on the Friday evening it will be moved to the Saturday night. If you have your own telescope feel free to bring it along. Wrap up warm!

- This event is weather dependent and will only take place if the skies are clear enough for observing. It is therefore necessary to check the weather forecast and confirm with the event organisers that this event is going ahead.
