Dark Sky Events at Low Gillerthwaite Field Centre

Once again our friends at Low Gillerthwaite Field Centre in Ennerdale are holding some Dark Sky Events this year. The two events are being held on Saturday 9th January and Saturday 6th February. More details on the LGFC website here.

This year the main activities will be between 4pm and 7.30pm on each day, with extended night sky observing if skies are clear.

As usual CAS members are welcome to come along and take part in the activities as well as supporting the event by helping to show the night sky to members of the public through our telescopes. If you are able to help please let me know beforehand so that let the organisers know how many people to expect.
