Due to its popularity we shall be holding another of our well-attended and highly enjoyable 'Tour of the Night Sky' observing evenings on Saturday, 13th November later this year at the NT Car Park, Newlands Corner, Shere Road, Guildford GU4 8SE. Members of the public are invited to come along and meet GAS members and their telescopes and take a look at the wonders of the Night Sky. For directions to Newlands Corner see here.

Come early and see the elusive blue planet Neptune before it sets early in the evening and see the beautiful Great Orion Nebula as it rises later in the evening. The majestic planets Jupiter (and four of its moons) & Uranus, the Great Andromeda Galaxy and many other stars, clusters, galaxies and nebulae will be visible throughout the evening.

This event is:

  • Suitable for everyone,
  • Free and
  • There's no need to book.

If it's cloudy we'll be indoors with a display and exhibition and GAS members will be on hand to answer questions.

Please feel free to download the poster for the event here and post it in your local library, doctor's surgery, local schools, barber's shop or supermarket!

GAS would like to thank the Surrey Wildlife Trust for their kind permission to use the Visitor Centre.
