Have your say

There will be a rare opportunity for people to see Jupiter from Stoney Wood just outside Wirksworth this week as the planet will reach its highest point in the sky for many years.

Put on by the White Peak Astronomical Observing Group, the event is free of charge and will allow people to see various star clusters, constellations and the planet Jupiter itself.

The event is part of National Astronomy week, and will take place at the Star Disc in Stoney Wood on the evening of Saturday the 1st, and Saturday the 8th March.
