Stargazing and Moon Observing with Scotland’s Astronomer Royal Catherine Heymans.
Join me up at Abriachan Forest (a Dark Sky Discovery site) for an evening of stargazing, Moon observing and astronomy with our special guest Scotland’s astronomer royal Catherine Heymans.
If skies are clear Catherine and local astronomer Stephen Mackintosh will host an outdoor Moon observing session with binoculars and telescope. Following this Catherine will present her indoor guest talk titled “Do Look up! Space Rocks and Killer Asteroids”
Refreshments provided plus binoculars for stargazing. Under 16s with accompanying adults go free.
