Live stargazing event on Bute

To celebrate the second year of the successful BBC Stargazing Live events, the Bute Astronomical Club has organized a special evening to allow the island to be part of this unique and exciting opening to 2012.

To complement the programmes which are running this week on BBC2 with Professor Brian Cox, the local club has organised a ‘Discover the Stars’ night at Ettrick Bay this Friday, January 20, when the island’s own astronomical expert, Brandane Douglas Cooper, will talk about the stars above us – and hopefully, if there are clear skies, lead those present in some live star-gazing.

The event starts at Ettrick Bay Tearoom at 8pm – for more information on Bute astronomical events see the club’s website (click on the link to the right of this article).
