The Island Planetarium, at Fort Victoria.
THOSE with an eye for the heavens have a chance to start learning the art of stargazing for free, thanks to a new Isle of Wight group appealing for members of all ages.
On Friday, January 10, at 6.30pm, the West Wight Stargazing Group will hold its first meeting at the Island Planetarium at Fort Victoria, hoping to attract people with little knowledge of the stars and those needing a refresher.
Astronomers will teach everyone the ropes and plan to relocate inside to use the planetarium’s simulated night sky in the event of bad weather.
It coincides with the latest BBC Stargazing Live series, presented by Dara O'Briain and Professor Brian Cox.
For more information on membership or to book a place, call 01983 761555 or go to www.thestarattraction.co.uk
