Join the stargazers at Dalby Forest
10:46am Wednesday 17th October 2012 in News
The sessions are held on the first Friday of each month until March, with the next one being November 2, at the society observatories near Low Dalby visitor centre.
An amateur astronomer from the society will give a talk and virtual tour of the night sky and if clear, visitors will be shown some of the objects visible in the night sky through the telescopes, including planets, the moon, galaxies, star clusters and nebulae.
Anyone planning to go along is advised to wrap up warm and take a torch, preferably red light or covered in red cellophane to preserve night vision, and to beware moving vehicles in the car park which is unlit.
There is no charge for these events but donations are welcome to help maintain the equipment.
