On Monday 14th March the 2nd Wendover Guides group visited WAS’s observatory for an evenings’ observing. Fortunately the weather was clear for the event and about 30 guides and their leaders had the opportunity to use the society’s 10” telescope and our own WAS members telescopes to look at a variety of objects including the Moon, Jupiter, M42 – the Orion Nebula and Sirius, amongst other things. There were lots of wows, cool and epics as the girls looked at these objects for the first time, particularly when looking at the craters of the Moon close up.
This was an excellent evening and great outreach event to be involved in.
Thanks go to all of those involved!
