There will be stargazing in Sandymount this Friday December 9th as the Dublin Sidewalk Astronomers meet at the Martello Tower Car Park.

The gathering will take place at 8pm in the car park, which is located on Strand Road just south of the tower. The event is free to attend and all are welcome, though it is weather dependent so anyone wishing to attend is advised to make note of the weather conditions on the evening.

Members of the Dublin Sidewalk Astronomers will be bringing their telescopes to share the wonders of the night sky with the public. The organisation has been active since 1989 and has pioneered the idea of Sidewalk Astronomy on this side of the Atlantic.
