Bath Moonwatch: Views of Venus, the Moon, Saturn and Mars

If you are heading to Bath near the end of April for a well earned relaxing city break, you may well be staying in one of the luxury Bath bed and breakfast for your accommodation in the city; if you are then you should be well placed to participate in a unique astronomical group event.

On April 28 from 8pm in Victoria Park, just in front of the famous No.1 Royal Crescent, the Wiltshire Astronomical Society and the Griffon Educational Observatory will be collaborating, with support by Bath and North East Somerset Council, in a public stargazing event.

The aim is for participants and visitors to view the planets of Venus, Saturn and Mars, as well as the Moon, making astronomy more accessible to people of all ages. This is a free event and is open to families and their children.

For more information on these fun artistic events, contact the Herschel Museum of Astronomy in Bath on 01225 446865

This should be a fun educational evening event that you could include into your itinerary while you take advantage of one of the spa breaks in Bath, as the city is still the number one spa destination in the UK.
