WEATHER PERMITTING, from 6pm we’ll be at Kendal’s Abbot Hall Park – the park at the bottom of Gillingate – with telescopes next Saturday evening, all set up to look at, and show people, the planet VENUS, which is currently a beautiful sight in the western sky after sunset. Lots of people have been looking at the dazzling blue-white star blazing away above the treetops these past weeks wondering if it was just a bright star, or even the space station, or even a UFO! But of course it’s a planet, and if you come and take a look at it through our telescopes you’ll see it looks like a tiny crescent.
