Well the date has now been set for our anual Stargazing Event, run by Nottingham Astronomical Society and hosted by us at the Old Bowling Green Pavillion on Greenwood Road. Its to be January 19th starting at around 5pm and going on until about 9pm.

Lets hope for a clear night for this one as it was cloudy last time. Everyone still had an enjoyable time though as the powerful telescopes that the Astronomers brought, were still able to see things such as Jupiter and its moons and at least it didn't rain!!

Wildlife in The City also came along and there was a walk led through the woods in the dark, much to the enjoyment of the children who thought it was really exciting. We are hoping to do the same again.

After being outside, looking at the stars, it was nice to pop into the pavilion for nice warming cuppa.

Put the date in your diary and come along and join us - we're a friendly lot!!
