Following the popularity of last year's event we were keen to hold another star gazing evening Troopers Hill in 2015. Star gazing is best near a new moon and of course requires clear skies, unfortunately the weather was against us for our possible dates in February and early March so we were pleased to have a glorious clear evening as the Bristol Astronomical Society (BAS) set up their telescopes on the last Thursday of March.
There was a good turnout and after a brief introduction and guide to what was where in the night sky everyone was able take a turn at each of the telescopes.
Visit www.bristolastrosoc.org.uk for other opportunities to join them and learn more about the night sky.
