On Saturday 23rd July at 11.30 we will be holding a small ceremony for Graham Jenkinson who sadly passed away earlier this year. Graham's widow and son will be joining us and Graham's friends who knew him from our astronomical society are welcome to attend. The ceremony will be at the Chesterfield observatory where we will be interring some of Graham's ashes.
The Chesterfield Barnett Observatory
Our observatory is open every Friday from 8pm onwards until the last person leaves. We always give visitors a warm welcome so if you'd like to join us, please feel free to do so. You don't need to book your visit, just pop over to see us and we'll show you around and make sure you get the opportunity to do some stargazing too if the weather is with us. We rely on the generosity of the local community to keep the observatory open so please can you place a small donation of £2 in out visitors' pot when you visit.
