LIVERPOOL Astronomical Society is hosting a star gazing gathering at Delamere Forest on Friday night.
Starting at 7.30pm, the two-hour event will see experts point outr constellations and there should be a chance to glimpse planets.
Geoff Regan, observatory director at the Society, said: “If it’s a clear night one of the most spectacular things you will actually see is the moon. You can see the craters quite distinctly.
“We’ll talk people through the constellations and also look at Mars which will be visible at this time of year, so it should be a pretty special evening.”
Star spotters are advised to wrap up warm and bring their own torches – but cover them in red cellophane to prevent dazzling.
You can also come equipped with your own binoculars and small telescopes, although there will be a range of telescopes to try out.
The event is free and there is no need to book, just turn up at Delamere Forest Visitor Centre between 7.30pm and 9.30pm.
