Amateur astronomers are being invited to a stargazing event at St Mary's Lighthouse, in Whitley Bay tonight.
North Tyneside Council and South Tyneside Astronomical Society are hosting the autumn sky watching night on October 13. It's hoped people will see Jupiter rising and the Andromeda Galaxy through powerful telescopes.
The free event starts at 6.30pm and runs until 11pm. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
Durham Police say they have received numerous calls from the public about mysterious lights in the sky.
The calls came in at about 11pm last night but have been attributed to meteors rather extra terrestrial visitors.
