Join the Astronomical Society of Glasgow astronomers for a tour of the stars in our beautiful winter night sky and how to spot the planets Jupiter and Saturn.
On a clear night, we will show you stars, galaxies, planets, meteors, satellites and more with your own eyes and through the Astronomical Society of Glasgow’s telescopes.
If it’s cloudy, you will hear all about these wonders from our team of seasoned and friendly astronomers (OK, possibly eccentric too!) who will be on hand with tips on how to get the most out of your own eyes, binoculars and telescopes. No experience is necessary.
Beginners, as are people who wish to bring their telescopes and learn how to use them, are most welcome. And remember to wrap up warm!
