Worcester - Stargazing Live 2012

Post by nightcal »

To tie in with the forthcoming BBC Stargazing Live broadcasts, on Wednesday 18th January to Friday 20th January Worcester Astronomical Society are hosting 3 x free public observing sessions at Worcester Countryside Centre. Worcester Woods Country Park

There will also be displays about amateur astronomy and a demonstration of the society's new low light video camera (Samsung SDC-435). It is hoped that the Orchard Cafe will also be open so you can get a cup of tea and something to eat whilst observing. Observing starts after 7:30pm.

The first 200 visitors can pick up a free BBC guide to observing the Moon and Stars. There will also be free stickers for kids and 'things to do' ideas cards.
