Observing Evening -August (Updated)

When: Saturday 18th August, 7:00 pm

Where: Tawa College  Wellington Harbour Waterfront

What: WAS Observing Evening

Venue changed to the Wellington waterfront.  This is a replacement for the Mars observing event on the 4th which was canceled due bad weather.

See many wonderful objects, star clusters, galaxies, dying stars and nebulae.

We will be focusing on the area around the Southern Cross and Milky Way which lies high across the night sky.  The planets Venus, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars are also visible.

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 021 890 222 to check on conditions.
