Star-gazing fun at nature site

Have your say

RSPB Old Moor nature reserve is teaming up with a local astronomy group to offer visitors an extra-special stargazing experience in South Yorkshire on Saturday.

The reserve near Barnsley will be holding the ‘Stargazing Extra’ event, together with Mexborough and Swinton Astronomical Society. The event will take place after the reserve has closed, allowing people to have more time with the expert astronomers.

The event will also include extended talks, a stellarium demonstration – a computer-based planetarium - and a pie and pea supper. Visitors will also be given an official 2012/13 astro calendar.

n Entry is £15. To book contact RSPB Old Moor on 01226 751593 or visit
