The Moon will be up, so during this session we'll look at it unaided, and using binoculars and the Observatory telescopes. Gary Lintern will lead with a talk about astronomy equipment, and how to plan an observing session, including advice on weather and finding which objects/events may be visible. It's the night after the Leonid meteor shower, so we may also see a few stragglers. Could be another chance to see Mars - and perhaps Venus.


Remember to wrap up warm, wear appropriate footwear and to bring a torch to see your way back to your car. DIRECTIONS 

Pre-registration is required to attend this event because capacity at the Observatory is limited.
