Brockholes Nature Reserve
Brockholes Nature reserve, Preston, Lancashire, PR5 0AG, North West
Join local astronomer and astrophotographer, Lee Hunt, for a virtual journey through the night skies of Lancashire, from our planetary neighbours to distant galaxies.
Find out what can be seen with the naked eye, basic equipment and more advanced photography of the wonders of our night sky. The talk will be split into two halves, with a pie and peas supper served during the break.
If the sky is clear, there will be an opportunity to view some of the wonders with Starsmith telescopes!
Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult. Prior booking is required.
