If you have looked in wonder at the night sky but feel you don’t know enough to identify star formations, help is at hand.

Sussex Wildlife Trust is running a course, which starts with an indoor presentation, ‘A Tour of the Universe’.

This will be followed by a stargazing walk outside to have the constellations explained.

An expert from Astronomia will help unravel the wonders of the night skies above Sussex using astronomical telescopes.

Mike Russell from the Sussex Wildlife Trust said: “In harmony with the land and the ocean, the night sky is our third landscape.

“It is important we understand how the moon and stars are used by nocturnal birds, bats and other animals for navigation.”

The course will run from 6pm to 9pm on February 20 at Woods Mill Nature Reserve near Henfield.

Organisers say it is suitable for anyone aged ten and over.
