Notice: Public Observing Nights at Dalby Forest 1st Feb/1st March 2019

Please be aware that gostargazing.co.uk have incorrectly advertised our event on 1st Feb 2019 as a Hidden Horizons paid event.
They have also listed us as running an event on both the 1st and 8th of March.

To Clarify:
SARAS have events on 1st February & 1st March only.
Hidden Horizons have events on 8th February & 8th March.

We have contacted gostargazing to rectify this

Please always go by the event calendar on our website or events posted here rather than external websites.

Update: Stargazing @ Dalby 1st Feb

Currently we are still planning on running the event tonight however I have been contacted by the Rangers at Dalby to say that have had a couple of inches of snow overnight with more expected this afternoon.

If the further snow cause the Rangers to decide to close the forest roads then we will have to cancel the event and we will update our website, facebook and twitter
