Do you fancy an evenings stargazing?

We are delighted to be hosting a Stargazing Live Event on the evenings of 22nd and 23rd of January 2016.

Following the popular BBC Stargazing Live TV series broadcast from the 12th January, 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.

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 treasures within the constellation of Orion through the large Celestron Telescope situated within our 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.

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

Wycombe Astronomical Society is a not for profits organisation so there is no fixed charge for this event, we would however like to request a minimum donation to the society of £2 per adult to help us cover the costs.

We hope to see you there, but in the meantime if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
