The majestic Milky Way will be looking at its sublime best as the dark sky season gets underway. We’ll take a tour of the spectacular late summer sky, glimpsing stars cluster, galaxies and even shooting stars, whilst showing you how to find objects for yourself.
The weekend will include colourful talks for novices and stargazing with our resident astronomer Richard Darn. Equipment is provided. Come along for the weekend or just the evening!
