Family Equinox Stargazing at Cuerden
Tue 21 March 2017, 19:30 – 21:30 GMT
See stars like never before plus the mighty Jupiter dominating the midnight sky!
Come and Join us stargazing around the Spring Equinox, at Cuerden.
The March equinox occurs on March the 20th so the evening of the 21st will mark nearly equal amounts of day and night - our local astronomers will have large telescopes on hand to show you the wonders of the night sky. Orion is still high in the sky to the South so we aim to show you the wonderful Orions nebula – a gas cloud in space where stars are forming before our eyes. Mars is also on show as an evening star ….
The event will go ahead cloudy or clear, if the weather doesn’t play along, we will be inside talking about astronomy, showing fascinating images and films while there will be telescopes and meteorites to wonder at.
Please book early - places are limited.
This event is only suitable for children aged 8+ who are able to sit and listen to a speaker.
Come dressed for the weather wearing warm clothing and sturdy footwear.
