Star gazing is out of this world

Anyone passionate about planets or curious about constellations should join the Knowle Astronomical Society at Star Gazing on Monday 13 October, 7.30pm – 9.30pm in Dorridge Park, as they train their telescopes on the natural wonders of the night sky. 
 
Visitors will have an opportunity to view sights like the Andromeda Galaxy through telescopes provided by members of Knowle Astronomical Society.  Those with their own telescopes are encouraged to bring them along and join in the star gazing fun.
 
People planning to come should wrap up warm and wear suitable footwear as the event takes place outdoors.  The star gazing will take place in the park if conditions are good, at the Village Hall car park if they are more uncertain or will be cancelled if the cloud coverage is too great for star gazing to take place.
 
Displays and a talk on astronomy will take place at Dorridge Village Hall at 8.30pm.  The talk will go ahead even if conditions are not suitable for star gazing.
Refreshments and toilet facilities are available at the Village Hall.
 
The event is free and suitable for all ages – visitors can park at either Dorridge Park or Village Hall  car parks.
