Monkton Stargazers Star Party on Friday 31 March 2017
Monkton Stargazers would like to invite you to a Star Party on Friday 31 March. This will follow 3 evenings of BBC Stargazing Live when Brian Cox and Dara O’Briain will fire us up to view the night sky. It will be a chance to meet other keen astronomers and to be entertained by some short talks on astronomy. Tim Long, who runs the White Observatory, soon to be completed, will describe the Astro Quest challenge. Isabelle Tighe has given advice to NASA on the Cassini Mission and she will explain why she chose the Hexagon storm on Saturn for the Cassini cameras. You’ve seen Venus’ brilliance for the past few months; John Hislop will explain why Space Journalist Paul Sutherland describes Venus as the Twisted Sister! There will be other interesting talks with a chance to ask questions about telescopes and astronomy and who knows, the sky might be clear when it gets dark at 9pm!
Luigi from f1telescopes will also be attending and giving a short talk on choosing your first telescope.
