Astronomy Week ***Camping only***

Astronomy for all

Sat 20th Aug -  Fri 26th Aug 2022

Space is available on this event! :-D

A week for those interested in the universe and our efforts to understand it.
Astronomer Roger Noble will bring a large telescope for practical observing
and will give a series of illustrated talks which range from our own solar
system out to the furthest reaches of space and time.

This year we'll dedicate one talk to the Red Planet, Mars. There's a lot going
on there at the moment with a number of rovers (and as I write this, one
helicopter) active on the surface and several satellites in orbit. We'll have
the latest discoveries to talk about.

At night we should get decent views of Saturn and Jupiter, and, if you are
prepared to stay up late, Mars itself.
