See the stars this weekend

If you want to see the stars this weekend go along the the Dark Sky Discovery Weekend at Low Gillerthwaite Field Centre, Ennerdale.

The field centre is Cumbria's first Dark Sky Discovery Site and holds regular Dark Sky Discovery Events that are open to members of the public on a regular basis

Members of CAS will be attending tomorrow afternoon and evening to provide advice and help as well as showing people the night sky through telescopes.

There will be plenty of related activities as well. Best of all, a view of the night sky is guaranteed as there will be a mobile planetarium organised by the field centre providing a virtual tour of the heavens.

It's quite a trek to the field centre so make sure you check the directions on the website.
