A half-hour public talk about some aspect of Astronomy will start promptly at 7.15pm in our lecture theatre. This is followed by an opportunity to look through the historical Northumberland and Thorrowgood telescopes if (and only if!) the weather is clear.
Members of the Cambridge Astronomical Association also set up modern telescopes on the observatory lawns, with video projection facility and commentary.
We can't always guarantee observing, of course, as it is very weather-dependent. The talk will always take place, and on a cloudy evening will be followed by a tea break and some short entertainment from the CAA.
The main entrance doors are open by 6.45pm. Please note that there is limited space in the lecture theatre, and seating is available on a first-come, first-seated basis. If you wish to skip the talk and only attend the observing, please do not turn up at the telescopes before 7.45pm.
This is a TERRIFIC opportunity to study for your astronomy cubs badge with some of the worlds best professional & amateur astronomers, see & use some very BIG & precious telescopes! ..so why not ask your parents & carers if you could pop along & make an evening of it on the edge of Cambridge & experience the stars for real as they are meant to be seen!?
