According to the weather reports, this Saturday night (6th Dec) is expected to be very clear – and cold.
The Hampstead Observatory in North London is open to the public from 8pm and this could be a good night to wander up for a bit of star gazing though their 6â€ Cooke refracting telescope. The views of London from there are also equally stunning if you want to aim your head down at the ground occasionally.
I’ll certainly be (intending to) wander over for a peek through their telescope, even if my star gazing skills are curently limited to "oooh, pretty!".
The telescopes are free to use, although they appreciate a donation to cover costs.
