Drakes Statue - Plymouth Hoe
Hoe Park, Plymouth, Devon, PL1 2PJ
After a long break, the Plymouth Astronomical Society will be near Drakes Statue on the Hoe, weather permitting, on Monday 11th October to do some stargazing and observe Jupiter, Saturn and Moon and maybe maybe maybe maybe Jupiter even Venus through the Societies 8-inch scope.
As we are still in a pandemic, the group asks only people prepared to be sensible to come!
The event is weather-driven and will happen if the skies are clear.
Please check the group’s Facebook page for the latest updates.
Please note that this event has already taken place on 08/11/2021
