Cancelled - Stargazing Live Public Event (Day 2)

Do you fancy an evenings stargazing?

** SORRY WE HAVE HAD TO CANCEL THE SATURDAY EVENT AS WELL. WE WERE HOPING THE  GLORIOUS SUNSHINE WOULD CONTINUE INTO THIS EVENING, BUT UNFORTUNATELY FORECAST CLOUDS HAVE ROLLED IN AND RAIN IS FORECASTED FOR LATER. WE WILL TRY AND RE-ARRANGE THE EVENT IN THE NEAR FUTURE.**

Ware delighted to inform you that we have re-scheduled our public Star Gazing Live event to the 1st and 2nd April after its initial postponement due to bad weather in late January.

These events follow the popular BBC Stargazing Live TV series that was broadcast in January, were Astronomy societies across the country teamed up to provide the general public with the opportunity to look at the night sky through high powered astronomy telescopes. 

The event is at the same location as our Cosmic Kidz event, Woodrow House Nr Amersham, but on the field next to the observatory.

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;

On arrival at Woodrow House please look out for the Car Park Marshalls who will direct you to a car parking space.

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.
