Comets – Ancient Icy Visitors from the Edge of our Solar System

March Star Stories at Abriachan Forest

Join us up at Abriachan Forest on March 25th (a Dark Sky Discovery site) for an evening of stargazing and storytelling.

For March we welcome HAS’s Maarten De Vries as our guest astronomer with a talk titled “Comets – Ancient Icy Visitors from the Edge of our Solar System”. Maarten had his first experience with comets when he was 11 years only and has been an ardent observer of the night sky ever since.

Additionally we welcome Fiona Macdonald our guest storyteller for the evening, sharing tales over the campfire.

Plus outdoor naked eye stargazing with astronomer Stephen Mackintosh if conditions are favourable.

Due to site and classroom capacity, booking via Eventbrite is essential. Admission is free for under 16s with accompanying adults but please inform Abriachan of any large booking requests.

Ticket can be purchased here.
