Celebrate the anniversary of Yuri Gargarin being the first man in space at this free stargazing event hosted by UK Astronomy! This will be in Emberton Sports and Social clubs field in Olney and a casual stargazing night not an event ideal for those likeminded people interested in astronomy to come along bring scopes, binoculars or just their eyes and look up at the sky. Note that this event is weather dependent.

- Event will involve stargazing and observing the skies through telescopes weather permitting
