Public Skywatch with Thurrock Astronomy Society

Wednesday 15th January 2020 from 19:00pm to 21:00pm

Horndon-on-the-Hill Methodist Hall

High Road, Horndon-on-the-Hill, SS17 8LQ


Members of the public are invited to join Thurrock Astronomy Society for an evening of stargazing.  Note that these events are very much weather dependent and will only take place if the skies are clear -- also note that the event may not be held at the Methodist Hall but instead another location nearby.  The event start time is also subject to change. The date of this event has been chosen to coincide with a new Moon so that the skies are at their darkest.

If you would like to attend please contact the event organiser at least 24 hours before who will then update you as to whether the event is going ahead, at what time and where!

- 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.

Corona virus

Please be aware that due to the Coronavirus it is likely that this event has been cancelled or postponed. If you are considering attending this event please double check with the event organiser directly to confirm.

This event is being organised by Thurrock Astronomy Society who should be contacted if you have any queries. We highly recommend you confirm this event is indeed going ahead before travelling.
