The Chiltern Society, with the West of London Astronomical Society (WOLAS), Woodoaks Farm and the Colne Valley Country Park, invites you to marvel at some of the most beautiful sights in our September skies visible from this dark sky site.
Join the knowledgeable team of WOLAS astronomers as they guide small groups to observe the crescent Moon low in the southern sky, the Milky Way with its many clusters and nebulae overhead, and the Andromeda Galaxy rising in the East. The International Space Station should also be visible.
