Come along to this stargazing event organised by the Plymouth Astronomical Society at Wembury beach starting at 8.30 pm.
Stay on late until around 11:30 pm to see the Orionids meteor shower along with the Orion constellation just coming into view.
The group asks everyone attending to be considerate – we are still in a pandemic, and they ask people to be sensible and keep a distance.
This event is dependent on good weather, and we will only go if it’s clear. Please check the event listing on Facebook for updates.
