Stargazing live: Astronomers stage Isle of Man events


Budding astronomers have been encouraged to take advantage of the Isle of Man's dark skies during a three-day Stargazing Live event.

The island's Astronomical Society will provide telescopes, binoculars and guidance to encourage people to make the most of the night sky.

Chairman Howard Parkin said: "It's a great hobby. You can't help but marvel at the wonders of the night sky."
