Everyone is welcome to join the friendly Wealden Astronomers for this regular last Friday of each month (with some exceptions) meetings at the spectacular Herstmonceux Castle.
On clear nights, if there are no other events scheduled, the group will also take advantage of the excellent observing and imaging opportunities that the dark location offers, away from light pollution sources.
For full details on how to attend this event, including how to book, please see the event's official website.Visit event website
