Stargazing Live Public Observing Events 27th and 28th March

Do you fancy an evenings stargazing?

We are delighted to be hosting a Stargazing Live Event on the evenings of 27th and 28th of March 2015 Following the popular BBC Stargazing Live TV series broadcast from the 18th - 20th March, Astronomy societies across the country team up to provide the general public with  the opportunity to look at the night sky through high powered astronomy telescopes.

This year together with Tring Astronomy Centre we will be hosting a Stargazing Live event on the evenings of 27th and 28th March 2015 at Woodrow High House near Amersham Bucks. The event will run from 8pm until 10pm on both days, and is open to all members of the public.  Children are very welcome at this event, but obviously the younger ones will need to be supervised by an adult.

Subject to the cloud conditions on the night, visitors will be able to look at a variety of objects including Jupiter and its arrangement of moons through the large Celestron Telescope situated within the Wycombe Astronomical Society Observatory.  In addition we will have a variety of other telescopes and binoculars trained on a host of interesting objects, each hosted by a society member eager to share the wonders of the night sky with you.

There will be experts on hand to answer questions about all aspects of astronomy including the equipment involved and tips on how to get started, so this is a great chance to get a taste for astronomy in a relaxed and friendly environment.

If thats not enough! light refreshments including tea, coffee and cake will also be available on the evening.

The event will take place on the field next to the Observatory, at Woodrow House Nr Amersham.  For more details about how to find the venue please click the link below;
