Brrr it's cold!

Last night saw the thickest frost in the Forest Park so far this winter (can I say winter already?)
There is snow on the hills and ice on the trees and shrubs which is very picturesque.
Here are a couple of pictures taken at Clatteringshaws this mroning just before the rain, then the hailstorm started.

The weekends Astro Fest went really well with many enjoying the variety of activities that were led. I have attached some pictures for you to see what the planetarium looks like and one picture on a short talk about comets.

We are already planning for the next Astro Fest which is scheduled for December so not far away at all and it will coincide with a big meteor shower around that time too.
Keep looking at our website and this blog for more information.

Bye for now
