Join the North Essex Astronomical Society astronomers who will have their telescopes set up for observing this evening as long as the weather allows!
Learn how to recognise the constellations. Bring your own telescope along for expert help. If the weather is partially clear, the group will still answer questions and chat whilst waiting for a break in the clouds.
The event is free, and no prior booking is required; however, parking charges apply.
