Today is our event in support of BBC Stargazing LIVE. We will be in the United Reformed Church on Cockermouth Main Street from 1pm with an astronomy exhibition and hands on activities.
From 7pm we will be in Memorial Gardens, just down the road, for a public observing event.
The sun is already breaking through the clouds here, and the forecast for the evening is promising with some broken cloud. Chances are good that we will be able to get views of Jupiter, the Moon and other objects.
It will get cold quickly though, reaching -2 C. So if you are coming along make sure you wrap up warm!
