Members of the public are welcome to join the Kernow Astronomers for this one of their regular first Thursday of the month (October through to March) observing nights at Trevarrion Holiday Park. It's a great opportunity to spend an evening exploring the night skies with enthusiastic and friendly astronomers -- if the weather does not permit being outside some practical demonstrations will instead take place indoors.

- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
