We are participating in the BBC Stargazing LIVE! event, covering the 3rd to the 5th of January 2011.

All are welcome to attend and bring along binoculars, and your telescopes if you have them.
We will have our 16" Meade Lightbridge, and our Skymax 127 GOTO telescopes for people to observe through.
We will be observing the planets (Jupiter & Uranus are close making a good viewing opportunity), observing some of the brighter Messier deep space objects, touring the constellations, and watching the Quadrantid meteor shower.
Don't forget to bring along a flask for a warm drink!
Please don't bring bright torches. Red is better to preserve night vision, so place some red cellophane over the lens if you can. NO smoking allowed on site, and any persons under 18 need to have a responsible adult with them.
Let's hope for clear skies!
