Next Meeting: Friday 11th August (19:30)

Weymouth Astronomy Club are pleased to announce their Public Open Evening on Friday August 11th at St Aldhelm’s Church Centre, starting at 7:30pm.

Members of the Club will be on hand to help all those interested in learning more about the night sky. During the evening there will be a variety of activities to suit newcomers to astronomy as well as those who have been observing for more years than they choose to remember.

Besides the opportunity to discuss telescopes and useful kit with other enthusiasts, the Campaign for Dark Skies will have a stall selling a variety of books and interesting astronomical items. Other activities during the evening include making a planisphere, investigating Stellarium or meeting local author, Geoff Kirby. Alternatively, why not try the fun quiz and see if you know more than our quizmaster?

The evening will conclude with a short talk, ‘Introducing the Solar System’. Everyone interested in learning more about astronomy or Weymouth Astronomy Club is welcome to attend but young people aged 17 years or less must be accompanied by an adult.
