On Air Night Flight | Midnight - 5:00am

See wonders of the universe in Onchan

Under the stars - weather permitting

There's a chance to experience the beauty of the night sky in the east of the Island this week.

The Isle of Man Astronomical Society is holding three 'Evenings Under The Stars' tonight (Monday), tomorrow and on Wednesday at Onchan Park from 7pm.

Attendees can use their powerful telescopes to view wonders such as the Orion Nebulus, Mars, Venus, and the Andromeda galaxy - all completely free.

The event is weather-permitting, so heavy cloud cover or rain may result in proceedings being postponed.
