Mere Sands Wood Nature Reserve
Holmeswood Road, Rufford, Lancashire, L40 1TG, North West
Come and experience an unforgettable stargazing night under the stars in our wonderful Nature Reserve!
Experienced astronomer Robert Ince (and friends) 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. We will try and show some of the skies wonders through our powerful telescopes and binoculars. These are all operated by local astronomers, who will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!
We’ll 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 we’ll still have colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.
