A Night Under the Stars

Members and guests enjoyed our Night Under the Stars event on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th September 2013.

Unfortunately the weather was not kind to us on the Friday; in fact it hammered down with rain. Three brave people braved it though and were able to have a look at the display boards and talk to those members who had come along to help. Saturday fared much better and although not perfect seeing conditions, it was clear enough to enable us to open the observatory and set up several telescopes on the lawn. About 80 people - members, guests and children from Woodrow House turned up and were able to view various astronomical objects.

Neil and Jane from Tring Astro were also on hand with a display of equipment for our visitors to look at and to offer advice on the various 'scopes available.
