A night with the stars
HILLINGDON residents are being offered a night out with the stars – those of the astrological variety.
West of London Astronomical Society is holding a free stargazing event at Ruislip Lido on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 5pm until 7pm, weather permitting.
Visitors will be able to gaze at the moon, the Seven Sisters, the Orion Nebula, and other wonders of the night sky through telescopes brought along by members of the society.
Members will also try to answer any questions about astronomy and space.
A spokesman said: “It is a fun event for all the family and there is no charge.
“There is a café and toilets on the site which will be open, courtesy of Rusilip Lido Railway.”
The site is accessed from the end of Reservoir Road HA4 7TY, via the gate adjacent to the free car park and is served by the H13 bus.
Make sure you dress warmly and take a torch.
