WOULD-BE astronomers can do a little lunar gazing this week – if cloud clears.
Huddersfield Astronomical Society are opening up their observatory all week, as part of the MoonWatch event.
The observatory at Crosland Hill will be open on clear nights only every day until Saturday from 7.30 to 9pm.
Robert Williams said: “We will be viewing the Moon using the observatory's telescopes and binoculars will be available for use as well.
“We are participating in an international event known as Galilean Nights MoonWatch. We want people to come and see some of the many features of Earth’s only natural satellite and we may be able to show other features of the autumn night skies too.”
The observatory is not heated and will be cold and there are no toilet facilities.
Admission: £2 adults, £1 concessions.
