The mysteries of the cosmos will be revealed at a special astronomy event at RSPB Frampton Marsh on Wednesday, January 8.

Members of the East Lincolnshire Astronomy Club will be at the nature reserve, just south of Boston, to show you the glories of the galaxy.

Starting at 5 pm, powerful astronomical telescopes will be set up to sweep the night sky.

Members of the club will be on hand to lend assistance and to explain what can be seen.

The reserve visitor centre will be open, to offer hot and cold drinks, snacks and toilets.

The event is free to attend and you can drop by at any time until midnight (weather permitting).

Chris Andrews, Visitor Services Officer for the reserve, said; “The position of the reserve, away from the lights of town, make it ideal for stargazing.

“We are very excited about this joint event with the astronomy club and are sure it will be a great night.”
