A night with the stars

Fingers crossed for clear skies on the night of 12 August...

If the weather's fine on 12 August, we're sky-watching with Guildford Astronomical Society at Dapdune Wharf.  The Perseid meteor shower should be at its height and with a new moon the day before, the sky should be dark enough to see shooting stars all evening, as long as those pesky clouds stay away.

From 8.30pm at Dapdune Wharf in Guildford.

Booking essential on 01483 561389, £5.
