Brockholes Nature reserve, Preston, Lancashire, PR5 0AG, North West
Robert Ince will be your guide taking you on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while also showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself. He will try and show some of the skies wonders through powerful telescopes and binoculars and will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!
Robert will tell you more about how we need to protect dark skies and show startling images and videos of the objects we hope to see when we go outside, weather permitting. But even if the weather does not co-operate there still will be colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.
