Come along to see the green Comet 2022 E3 (ZTF) through the telescope from the Field of Hope, Tomintoul. Clear skies are forecast for Tuesday evening, and the moon won’t rise until 18:45, so this will be an excellent opportunity to catch this incredible visitor to our skies last seen 50,000 years ago! Hosted by Cairngorms Astronomy Group and Tomintoul and Glenlivet Development Trust.
