Abingdon Road Car Park - Tubney
Tubney, Kingston Bagpuize, Oxfordshire, OX13 5QQ
Join the Abingdon Astronomical Society members for this one of their regular “first clear night” observing sessions at their favoured observing location just off Abingdon Road in Tubney.
Beginners are welcome, especially if you are looking to purchase a telescope or have never looked through one before!
Note this event will only take place on one evening and only if the skies are clear — if it is not clear on Monday evening, they will try again on Tuesday and again on Wednesday.
Anyone wishing to attend this event must contact the Society first — a mailing list to which you might subscribe is also offered.
Please note that this has already taken place on 03/01/2022
