Stargazing Live event to be hosted

AN ASTRONOMY group is hosting a taster session on the wonders of space on Friday and Saturday in conjunction with a BBC stargazing event.

Worthing Astronomers will host two events as part of BBC Stargazing Live, an annual series which aired last week.

The group will have a range of telescopes set up for the public to view and regular members will be on hand to answer questions.

They will meet on the promenade between Grand Avenue and Seaview Road from 7pm, providing the weather is favourable.

Hundreds of adults and children turned up to the group’s Stargazing Live event last year, when the moon was the main focus. The event follows the partial eclipse, which attracted interest across the country.
