Braintree: Stargazers fear racecourse floodlights will block night sky
12:00pm Friday 21st September 2012 in News
Stargazers fear a racecourse’s floodlights could prevent their group from seeing into the night sky.
The North Essex Astronomical Society (NEAS) fears plans to adapt the floodlights at Great Leighs Racecourse will impact upon their stargazing activities at the nearby Discovery Centre, in Great Notley.
The owners of the racecourse, which last held horse racing in 2009, want to host races again in the near future.
