A stargazing event to reveal the ‘mysteries of the universe’ is taking place at RSPB Frampton Marsh on Wednesday.

Members of the East Lincolnshire Astronomy Club will be at the nature reserve, just south of Boston, to show visitors the glories of the galaxy.

Starting at 5pm, powerful astronomical telescopes will be set up to sweep the night sky and members of the club will be on hand to lend assistance and to explain what can be seen.

Chris Andrews, visitor services officer for the reserve, said: “The position of the reserve, away from the lights of town, make it ideal for stargazing. We are very excited about this joint event with the astronomy club and are sure it will be a great night.”

The reserve visitor centre will be open to offer hot and cold drinks, snacks and toilet facilities.

The event is free to attend and you can drop by at any time until midnight (weather permitting).

RSPB Frampton Marsh is signposted off the A16, five miles south-east of Boston.
