Description

Explore the skies with the enthusiastic astronomers from Sandy Astronomical Society and their telescopes at this public observing evening at Blunham Playing field. Note that these events are weather dependent with a decision made around 14:00 on the day -- announcements as to whether the event will be going ahead or not are made via the Society's Facebook page or Twitter.

- 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.


Organiser
