A lesson in the night sky

Solihull Council and Knowle Astronomical Society are inviting people to come star gazing in Dorridge Park on Tuesday 8 March.

This promises to be a perfect evening for anyone who wants to learn more about the night sky.

People can bring their own telescopes or have a look through those that will be available for members of the public to use. Experts from Knowle Astronomical Society will also be on hand to help identify the planets and constellations in the sky and answer any astronomical questions.

The free event starts at 7.30pm and will last for approximately two hours. Attendees should meet at Dorridge Park car park and wrap up warm.

Any changes to the event due to unsuitable conditions will be announced on Solihull Council’s website: http://www.solihull.gov.uk/ and the event will be postponed until Thursday 10 March if necessary.
