Stargazing LIVE events today

Today we have two events today that anyone can get involved with.

At 12pm we will be in Cockermouth town centre with special solar telescopes, hopefully showing people the Sun close up, and safely. (NEVER look directly at the Sun with binoculars or telescopes, without special equipment). Hopefully we will see sunspots and other features on the surface.

Later on we'll be back in Memorial Gardens from 6pm to look at the night sky. CAS members will be on hand with their telescopes to show people a range for objects. We will be near the Wakefield Road car park, close to the children's play area.

Wrap up warm and come along.
