Stonehaugh Community Hall
Stonehaugh, Hexham, NE48 3DZ, North East
An opportunity to ask all those questions;
“What is a star?”
“Why is Pluto no longer a planet?”
“What are we doing to find life elsewhere?”
Learn about our solar system, our local neighbourhood, and we will even discuss distant galaxies and the far reaches of the universe.
Presentation and stargazing under the dark skies of Stonehaugh if weather permits.
Please be aware, when observing is possible, temperatures can be severe and the ground underfoot can be soft and wet, to ensure your own comfort, please wear suitable attire.
