WAS Observing Evening

When: Saturday 26th August 7:00pm,
Where: Tawa College

See many wonderful objects, star clusters, galaxies, dying stars and nebulae. We will be focusing on objects around the galactic centre like the Lagoon, Trifid, Swan, and Eagle nebulae as well as a number of other Messier objects prominent in this part of the night sky. Both Jupiter and Saturn will be visible from early evening. Come and learn how to star-hop through the night sky to find many of the various astronomical objects using the Society’s Dobsonian telescopes.

Chris is often there on Friday evenings too so feel free to come along though it would be best to give him a ring on 021 890222 to check on conditions.
