AstroBash 2009

October 24th 2009.

Astrobash is a full afternoon and evening of space, science and fun! It's Kent's opportunity to look up into space, and it's open to all ages!

Ashford Astronomical Society is hosting a celebration of Astronomy giving the public a chance to have a look through telescopes at the wonder of the night sky - with friendly guides on hand to explain it all!

Telescopes be available during the evening, and a series of fascinating talks have been organised during the afternoon, using our advanced computerised projectors and planetarium.

During the day we plan to use a specially modified 'Solar Telescope' to image the sun on a large projector screen, and we will also be attempting to link up to an earth orbiting satellite and gain a live weather forecast!

For our younger visitors there is a bouncy castle, a chance to make and fly your own rocket, create your own planet, try your hand at controlling a lunar lander and even meet a Dalek!

We will also be raffling a brand new Astronomical Telescope during the day.

Astrobash 2009 will run from 2pm until 9pm on October 24th, and will be held at:

Woodchurch Community Centre
Lower Road
TN26 3SQ
